       Typically, young children don’t just dive in and have beautiful, legible handwriting. Strengthening of fine motor skills helps them develop the control they need for handwriting. This book offers 64-pages of practice for the pre-writing years. Six basic patterns are presented and practiced in a fun way that should appeal to the preschool and kindergarten crowd – left to right (sideways), tall and short lines (top to bottom), zigzag (going up and down), spiral and circle (around and back, around and forward), up and over, and down and under. The practice progresses from children drawing with wide shaded and dotted lines to shaded without dotted lines, to narrower lines, to no shading or lines at all. All this practice is done on blackline pictures that can be colored after finishing their lines. Start developing that handwriting with some pre-writing fun! ~ Donna

    Teaching your child to read can sometimes be a challenge—so let the Reading Game lend a hand! If your child likes to be read to, is familiar with letters, and shows interest in storytime by pretending to read or wants words pointed out while reading – then you are ready for this game. This award winning game is by Kenneth Hodkinson, the author of the Wordly Wise program. This game introduces children to 180 sight words and helps them memorize and remember those words through playing a simple memory game. The sight words found in this game are taken from the Dolch Word List for PK through 1st and from "100 most commonly used English words from the Reading Teacher's Book of Lists by Fry". This game can even be used in classroom or tutoring situations since it is written to meet Common Core Reading Standards for Literature and Informational Text for Kindergarten and 1st grades.

    So, how easy is it? There are six readers that use 30 words each. There are 60 word cards (two of each word) that correspond to each book. Place ten cards (two each of five words that are listed in the Rules and Teacher's Guide) face down on the table. Two players take turns flipping the cards over until one gets a match. When a match is made, the player says the word several times in a clear voice. Do this until all five words have their match, then shuffle and play again. Play with the first set of five words until the child can read all five of them without difficulty. Repeat this same process with the next list of five words. Children are asked to read test sentences after every other word group in order to keep all the words fresh. After going through all 30 words, the child is then ready to read the story book. Follow this same procedure for the words for each of the six storybooks. Words from previous books are used along with new words in subsequent stories.

    The six storybooks found in the game are very simple to read. They are all printed in lower case letters except for the "I" and there is no punctuation. Children will know that it is the end of a sentence simply because the line ends, and breaks between sentences indicate pauses. The Reading Game includes all six storybooks and six decks of corresponding word cards (60 each) along with a Rules and Teacher's Guide. Downloadable worksheets are available at the publisher's website (thereadinggame.com) – pre/post sight word assessments, test sentence worksheets, class recording sheets for the assessments and test sentences.

    You will still want to do phonics and there is a short section of teacher's guide devoted to implementing phonics in with the material found in the game. Children will encounter sight words in everything they read, and this game will enable them to tackle some of that reading with more confidence. – Donna

    This curriculum guide for young children is crammed with a multitude of fun, educational activities to teach them about many different subjects while they learn their alphabet. The book is organized by the alphabet, with activities and reproducibles accompanying each letter. For example, the book begins with "A," which is introduced by a large capital "A," which children are invited to cover with "Aa's" they find in magazines or newspapers. The next page offers a couple of lines for them to practice printing upper and lowercase "A's" along with coloring pictures of related objects. Then it's on to the pages of activities. First there is a language arts page, which holds suggestions for such things as vocabulary words, fingerplays, recommended books, learning directions, and comparing. Then comes the math page, which introduces activities like sorting animal crackers, making patterns, and mathematical concepts like more and less. Next is social studies, which for "A" is themed around Agriculture and Farming. Children may create a farm scene, learn about farm animals, make butter and farm animal crackers, make a farm print, and learn about vegetables. On the science page, children will learn about air by finding ways to "see" it, like making simple sailboats and pinwheels, and experimenting with air. For two all-time favorite subjects of young children, art and music, there are also activities supplied. Children will enjoy making alphabet block prints, making personalized art display holders, painting aquariums

    and learning about mixing colors while creating abstract paintings, and singing "A" songs while getting acquainted with a couple of instruments. The last topic covered in each letter is gross motor/games. This page offers some games and activities to put children's energy to good use. They'll play the Alert and Auto Dodge games, learn aerobics, act like the animals, and practice being acrobats. On the backside of each activity page are reproducibles offering up reproducible activities such as coloring, matching and arranging. Some of these pages also hold the patterns needed to complete the activities suggested in the book. This same format continues for each letter of the alphabet. A total of over 600 activity suggestions, 130 reproducible games and patterns, and 50 alphabet identification pages are contained in this 320 page book. - Melissa

    A fun introduction to letters and sounds for your littlest learners. They will practice letter recognition, letter-sound association, matching sounds, following directions, problem solving, and more as they enjoy the colorful images. Instructions are read to your child. Stars and check marks show how many letters and sounds were matched correctly. Footprints across the bottom of the screen track progress. After exercises, there are games as a reward. Develop essential pre-school skills and build reading readiness. Be sure to add lots of reading time with your child. As you read a story, you can remind them that they worked on that sound today on the computer. Then the next time you do the exercises, remind your child of the story and the sounds such as the beginning of character's names. It's the cross-referencing that helps this new knowledge stick! Recommended for ages 3-5. Minimum system requirements: Windows Vista, XP, 2000 or Mac OS X 10.5, 10.4.11, 10.3.9. ~ Sara
