Games for Learning

In Games for Learning, Peggy Kaye, renowned teacher and author, gives parents more than seventy original, entertaining, and slyly educational ways to help their children master crucial learning skills - in just ten minutes a day. The games cover all the important areas of the school curriculum from kindergarten to third grade: reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, logical thinking, even science, history, and geography. There's fun here for both parent and child alike--plus skills that will lead to success in school and enhance any youngster's self-esteem.

Games for Learning also includes a "Note to Teachers" which shows how to make these games part of school life.
