TiffinTalk’s High School cards are designed specifically for teens in grades 9 through 12. With more sophisticated typography meant for teens, the complex content still contains TiffinTalk’s signature "no right/wrong answer" meant to develop interesting and engaging conversations that both parent AND child can enjoy participating in while — shh!! — further developing creative and critical thinking skills very much lost to an age group where curriculum focuses on memorization and manipulation of facts.
Your initial purchase arrives in a boxed set filled with 65 daily cards arranged in 13 themed weeks for the season of your choice. We've also included summary cards for each week to help parents start, shape, and develop the conversations around each theme and to avoid the "uh-huh", "that's nice", and non-sequitur answers that come with end-of-the-day parent exhaustion. Finally, you'll find one week of blank cards for you (or your child) to start the conversations of your choice.
ABOUT THE CARDS
The card fronts feature images that have been chosen to appeal to older teens, while the progressive weekly puzzle 'reveal' of the card helps develop your child's analytic, predictive, and creative thought processes. By High School, the weekly puzzle becomes more interesting and more challenging with a 14-piece tangram puzzle!
The back of every card features our tiffintidbits, weekly themed facts that don't involve pop culture or celebrity facts. The backs are deemed a "no adult zone" because we want kids to learn something fun on their own. Let them share spontaneously. No quizzing allowed!
Inside the cards, you will find original content with provocative questions ranging from silly to serious depending on the theme for that week. There is always enough room for you to address the card, sign it, and include additional thoughts or reminders.
NOTE: 2 name labels are also included with a boxed set purchse so that your teen can decorate his or her own box (or forehead, as they choose). (PLEASE FILL IN THE NAME FIELD ABOVE and include your teen's preferred color(s) so that we can print the labels accordingly.)
BOXED OR UNBOXED?
TiffinTalk recommends that you purchase your first set of cards WITH the box. It's lovely, reusable, and will keep your cards in optimal condition for daily use – rather than having loose cards lost in a desk drawer.
PLAN AHEAD. SAVE MONEY.
You can also purchase the full year set, which comes with one custom-made box and all four seasons of High School 1 cards at a $20 discount off the cost of separate purchases.
