Are you looking for gift ideas for your beginning readers? Consider these:
1. Spot It! Recognizing objects in different sizes and orientations is a critical reading skill. Ignore the age recommendations – just adjust the level of challenge so that your child has fun.
2. Bananagrams: Building words and playing with sounds boosts reading skills. Take these tiles anywhere and invent your own games and challenges.
3. I never forget a face: Memory is an often overlooked skill that is important when learning to read. This memory game is beautiful, but any memory game will do.
