Thanks for Visiting Us At the Big Read in Clayton

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

We had a good time at the Big Read in Clayton, MO last weekend. The weather was unseasonably cold, but a sizable crowd showed up to hear some  great writers, such as Greg Mortenson, the author of best-seller Three Cups of Tea. At the Bradburn’s Parent Teacher Store tent, we gave Verbal Volley game demonstrations to a steady stream of book lovers, who came to Mr. Mortenson’s presentation right across the sidewalk.  It was fun to meet everyone who tried our game. We had bilingual people playing Verbal Volley in Spanish and English simultaneously, and even in English and Persian simultaneously. Thank you to all of the reading specialists, classroom teachers, English teachers, foreign language teachers, ESL teachers, parents and word game enthusiasts who gave us your feedback on our vocabulary game and/or purchased it from Bradburn’s.  We would also like to thank Bradburn’s for inviting us to present at their booth during the literacy festival.

See Us at the Big Read in Clayton, MO

We hope there is a great turnout for the Big Read literacy festival this Saturday, Oct. 10, 2009 in downtown Clayton.  Cultural Festivals has organized a great event with activities and presentations for all ages. Come see us at the Bradburn’s Parent Teacher Store booth Saturday at 10:30 am. Kristin Edmonds will be at the Bradburn’s booth to give a presentation on using socially interactive wordplay to teach vocabulary for literacy. We will demonstrate Verbal Volley for those who are interested, and Bradburn’s will have the game for sale.
