I enjoyed shouting 'I'm a Star' when I won the game. You are doing spellings and reading but it's more fun because you can play with other people and win! This game is also helpful because you can make your own cards with things you want to practise.

Alais Winton continues with her mission to make learning fun, even for those who struggle, in a book full of ideas to motivate and encourage children everywhere.
This is another super book from Alais Winton. It does indeed contain lots more fun activities and games that parents at home could quite easily use to support a dyslexic learner. Really fun games, with clear instructions and templates provided, to support reading skills including familiarity with some common phonic patterns, spelling skills including some common spelling rules, punctuation skills, and basic numeracy skills. All games tap into areas of potential strength in a dyslexic learner's profile (visual, sound, movement) to make learning more memorable and personalised. And Alais shares some more general and encouraging top tips and advice for parents supporting learners at home.
