*Shoots and Ladders--Oh, the highs and lows of Shoots and Ladders. This game helped my son learn about being a gracious looser. It's hard when you have to slide back down, but you keep going and learn the value of perseverance.
*Candy Land--What more fun than candy? A great game for learning about colors, taking turns, and general game play.
*Memory--There are so many levels of Memory cards. We've had several versions of the game and some are more complicated than others. A great warm up game for remembering location and visual discrimination.
*Go Fish!--Depending on your Go Fish! cards, you can use this game for colors, visual discrimination, number recognition, and so much more.
*Uno--Again, this is a great game on so many levels. Start with a beginner's set including characters, and move up to a more standard deck to work on number recognition.
