Academic skills such as attention, reading and writing require a myriad of foundation skills which begin to structure themselves from birth. The Magnismart Activities and Games attempt to exercise the perceptual skills necessary for Literacy and Math. These neurological pathways, unfortunately only establish themselves if they are exercised or stimulated. It is essential that the foundational skills are established before the formal instruction of reading and writing to prevent learning difficulties. The magnets used on the three tiered work board are appealing to young children and the skills are taught through exercises, which are perceived to be games, children are therefore learning through play.
