There is no skill more important for a child to master more than writing - and none more difficult or fraught with anxiety. Peggy Kaye, renowned teacher and author of the widely praised Games for Math, Games for Reading, and Games for Learning, now gives parents more than fifty ways to help their children become skilled, confident, and enthusiastic writers.

From the Back Cover:

A wizard at turning learning tasks into delightful games that leave children - and parents - clamoring for more, Kaye offers a wealth of activities covering every aspect of writing. Children will maneuver through mazes to improve their handwriting, learn the alphabet by baking pretzels, play rhyming games to stretch their vocabulary, and crack secret codes while practicing their spelling. Even the most hesitant young authors will warm to writing when creating menus for monsters, thinking up orders that parents must obey, and composing stories - long, long stories - on adding-machine tape. The games are easy to play, requiring few or no materials, and are remarkably effective. While playing, children develop the skills needed to write clear and lively prose. Better yet, they may discover a true love of writing.

About the Author:

Peggy Kaye is a reading and math tutor in New York City. She has a master's degree in early-childhood education from Columbia University's Teachers College and has taught in both public and private elementary schools.
