About SimplyFun:
SimplyFun is THE parental resource for using play to build smarter kids. We know that all kids face challenges as they learn, but sometimes the places that they are stuck are not immediately obvious. When parents play with their kids, they can observe their skills first hand and identify areas that will be blockers to success. For example, a young child may be able to sight identify the letters of the alphabet but that same child cannot actually sequence the letters in order. Many parents think this is the same skill because as adults we use them together. But the actual identification and ordering are two different processes. Parents would be surprised how often the child can do the first skill but not the second one. Sequencing is a key skill in early reading, but also in early math. We know that our products can help parents help their kids, whether their children are gifted, exceptional, challenged or just plain normal! Each child can still take a step forward in developing their skills from where they are today, and we know how to make that step FUN.
