There are few skills more important for a child to master 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 educators and parents more than fifty ways to help children become skilled, confident, and enthusiastic writers.

The games are easy to play, requiring few or no materials, and are remarkably effective. 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. While playing, they will develop the skills needed to write clear and lively prose.
