A little pandering to my inner pressuring mom...also, these things are in fact, totally mesmerizing.

The race is on to make three letter words with What's Gnu. Aimed at children aged 4-7 this game was best played in adult/child teams when my daughter was first starting to learn how to read- but now that she's getting to be a stronger reader she's doing great all on her own. Players get a series of cards with two blanks and a consonant and then race to make the most words by filling in the cards with the tiles that they draw. Great for learning sight words and vowel sounds.

  • A really fun way for preschoolers to practice their letters and get started with some basic spelling and reading. It can be played solo or in a group. Ages 3-6.

AI used to have a set not unlike this one and used it all the time to play school while I was in pre-school. The box says 4+ but as long as your child doesn't snack on non-food items they will like this set as early as 2-3 years.

Reading can be fun, but I confess that I sometimes ran out of ideas to make learning to read a game for my child. Enter Hot Dots to save the day. My daughter really loved playing with these- the pen (sold separately) gives off all kinds of cool sound effects and light bursts. This is the first set in the phonics series and the pen works with all of them so you can expand as your child progresses- or you can use them without the pen if you choose. My daughter loved doing these on her own or with me.

Hot Dots from Educational Insights are a great series of teaching aids that allow children to independently study and practice phonics, addition, subtraction and more. The pen shown here is sold separately and works with all the components. When the pen touches a "hot" dot (the right answer) the pen gives one of several affirmative phrases and glows brightly. Choose a "cold dot" and the pen gives a "boing," prompting kids to try again. Most kids really love using these!
