However, reading is not the only skill that is important for children to learn. Exercising your child’s learning brain is also important. This can be done by providing activities that help your child learn and explore new things. Some examples of activities that help exercise a child’s learning brain are: playing puzzles, doing word searches, learning a new language, and playing educational games. By providing your child with activities that help exercise their learning brain, you can help them become a successful reader and learner.
