Make your home a learning haven with these fun and interactive multisensory games

Learning should be fun. But when a child struggles with a learning difficulty, the pleasures of reading and writing are often replaced by fear, frustration, and embarrassment. Help foster a relaxed and playful approach to learning for your whole family with the step-by-step multisensory reading and writing games found in Wordplay.

Most likely your child is already overwhelmed by the rigors of classroom drills. With Wordplay, you'll turn your home into a place where your child feels safe, smart, confident, in control, and open to learning and exploration. By taking a playful approach to learning, some of the featured games help children practice and master the foundations of reading and writing, while others prompt children to organize their thoughts, strengthen their memory, and improve their spoken language and motor skills. These engaging no-prep or low-prep games can be adapted for learners of different ages.

Fun learning games you can play with your family include:

  • Letter/Sound/Word Jump: Leap to learn the alphabet.
  • Crazy Ates: Deal the cards--and practice rhyming.
  • How Much Is That Word? Add up the letters and get rich in vocabulary.
  • Room Sleuth: Hear the phonics clues, guess the object.
  • Breaking News: Report a scoop in the shortest possible way.
  • Hopping Sentences: Play hopscotch to learn the basic parts of speech.
