At a very early age, even as young as infancy, reading books is the most important aspect of developing fun games to teach english early learning skills. However, as infants age into toddlerhood, the attention span and stimulation demands of that young mind starts to mature.
Starting as young as three years old, young children consume information as quickly as a sponge absorbs water. Before the age of computers and the Internet, preschool teachers and parents relied on educational toys to foster and develop early learning skills. The first thing you’ll notice when you visit Game Goo is how simple it is to navigate. The difficulty level starts from “Beginner” at the bottom in a blue section, and then goes to “Intermediate” in dark purple and then “Advanced” in light purple. The games are scattered throughout each section so that your child can explore each game within their own difficulty level. For parents and educators, the nice thing about the layout of the games on the main page is that when you roll the mouse over a particular game, the learning skill associated with that game is listed at the very top of the screen. For example, rolling over “Fearless Frieda The Big Kahuna” reveals that the game teaches spelling and requires keyboarding skills.
In the advanced category, you’ll find fun games like “Squanky the Tooth Taker – Quiet Quest for Opposites. In this game, Squanky the Tooth Taker teaches children about antonyms. However, animation and score-keeping aspect of the game keeps kids interested and involved, even in a subject that normally most kids find boring. This is the beauty of online, interactive learning games.
