Tri-Bond, Shamrocks and Auditory Association

mail ~ shoe ~ lunch 

What do these three words have in common?

Tribond is a game that gives you three words and you must tell how these are related.  

One of my Little Listeners made this one up for me. Here are her clues:

McDonald’s, A bank, A car wash.  The answer is they all have DRIVE THRUs!

TriBonds targets higher level thinking and auditory comprehension. Listen and by auditory association find the common link that joins three words. At first, they may seem to have nothing in common. This game of threes requires auditory processing, a good vocabulary or background knowledge and deductive reasoning. 

TriBonds can be relatively easy:
carrots ~celery ~ lettuce
Or much more challenging:
car tires ~ planets ~ crops

Depending on the age of your child you can buy the game - there is a kid's version or here some ways that you can use TriBonds: 

As a family come up with their own Tribonds. First,  come up with a common word and then try to find three words to go with it. 

  • Keep a list of TriBonds (or the cards from the game) nearby for those extra few minutes in the car, before dinner etc. 
  • Start a family listening and spoken language tradition with a "Daily TriBond."
  • Check out the Tribond website for their Daily Tribond.

Here are some (kid's) TriBonds that are all connected by a single word to get you started.    I know I should probably give the answers. But then what fun would that be?Reference: http://www.minds-in-bloom.com
