ABCya provides over 400 fun and educational games for grades PreK through 6. Activities are designed by parents and educators, who understand that children learn better if they are having fun. Games are categorized by grade and subject, and cover topics such as multiplication, parts of speech, typing, pattern recognition, and more. There are even games that are just plain fun (and safe) to play! With so much variety, there is sure to be something for kids at all learning levels and styles.
Children in pre-kindergarten to grade 2 have been delighted by volunteers readers visiting the schools, along with a special guest…The Cat-in-the-Hat, thanks to our project funding for TLE’s Wonderful World of Stories.
Early interactions with your children, like sharing books, talking, singing, or playing, help lay the foundation for early language and literacy – essential skills for success.
Parents will find specially tailored and curated activities ranging from reading, recipes, rhymes and games specifically designed to build strong reading, writing and literacy skills in their child, and have FUN doing it!
There are three simple ways to share books throughout the year!
1. Give a Book to a Friend or Relative. Celebrate the love of reading by giving a child a new, used or borrowed book.
2. Leave a Book in a Waiting Room or Lobby. Choose a waiting room where kids are stuck waiting and there are few to no good books available. Purchase a good book, and deposit your book covertly or overtly in your waiting room of choice. The goal here is to spread the love of reading to kids, so choose a fun book.
3. Donate a Book. Wrap up a box of children’s books that your kids have outgrown and get them in the hands of children who could really use a book or two. Donate your books to your local second hand store, library, children’s hospital, or shelter.”
