With its play environment that reflects that of a school and many personalizable components, this game will motivate the child to explore reading and writing exercises in comfort and style. Turn off the lights and battle pesky parachuters, play with letters as they float through space, create birthday invitations with the typewriter, and even learn the importance of caring for one’s belongings!
A name is a source of identity and pride for a young child. Learning to read and write it is a milestone and for many, the gateway to becoming an emergent reader. In fact, The National Reading Panel specifies that by the end of kindergarten, children should be able to write their own first and last names and the first names of some friends, classmates, or family members. The ability to accomplish this task shows evidence of the child’s phonological and alphabetic awareness as well as their fine motor skills– all of which play an important role in becoming a capable reader.
