Eight In A Row: Developing Pre-Reading Skills
Before a child can learn to read, there are essential "pre-reading" skills that a child must master. Three of the most important are sequencing, left-right progression, and time progression (before and after). All can be explored and practiced with Eight In A Row. The puzzles show scenes that are familiar to most children. There is a child making a painting and a child getting up in the morning. Each piece has only one place to fit it onto the next piece, so children with delayed fine motor skills can usually manage the puzzle-fitting with a minimum of frustration.
