Last but not least, we invited our year 5/6 buddy class to help us test our game. We taught them how to play it then read some books together using the cards and score cards.
We asked them: How does this game help learning? Is it fun? Why? Any improvements to make it better? These are some of their comments:
1. How does this game help learning? It has lots of different reading tools so when people use them they understand how to use them later on in life. Yes because you can choose the reading tool you want to use. It helps learning in that you have to think about what you read instead of just reading.
2. Is it fun? Why? Yes it's fun because you have to look at the text and find key words. It's better than normal reflecting. You get to think about it more because you have to choose the card to play.
3. Any improvements to make it better? No. I like the set-up and strategising. Maybe make the score card instructions clearer.
