Learning to read is one of those huge childhood milestones, but we don’t often stop to think about all the skills that need to be in place before a child can actually start reading with any fluency. A child needs to be able to:
- pay attention
- keep information in their short term memory
- keep track of the sounds in order
- organize information to make it make sense
- create a mental picture
- plan their use of various reading strategies
- derive meaning from what is being read
- sorting animals by size (Critter Sizer),
- collecting objects in a specific order (Scuba Dude),
- recreating a scene from a story (Going Buggy),
- photographing animals (Photo Safari),
- collecting p’s, q’s, b’s and d’s (Rocket Racer),
- placing robot pieces together by shape and size (Robo Bobo),
- reproducing a pattern (Design a Door),
- finding letter sounds in order (Desert Dash),
- collecting letters to form words (Crazy Maze),
