It is well understood that children learn naturally through active play. Play is, by definition, a child-friendly activity. When children engage in active play, their attention and learning retention is high. Eyewords games and activities are designed to make learning to read enjoyable, as young readers learn the high frequency words through experiences of touching, moving, seeing and hearing. Eyewords tools utilize components from all modalities at one time. The key to reaching every student is to have a variety of approaches available. As parents and educators we can promote success in reading by using multisensory materials such as Eyewords right from the beginning.
