Reading Without Limits

SETS

SET has been mentioned in this blog before, but I really think it deserves equal footing along side Audiblox.

SET is a game that families all across America play, and thanks to a suggestion by Lynn, I think it would be a GREAT tool to have in any reading teacher’s classroom or any teacher that works with special needs students.

Often students with special needs struggle with recall.  SET does not teach memory tricks explicitly, BUT it does build the synapses in the brain.  Specifically, SET builds brain synapses in order to recognize patterns and relationships.

It’s just like going to the gym… you lift weights to build endurance, strength and look hot.  Do SET to have fun, build pattern recognition, memory tricks and ultimately become a better reader.

Here’s how SET works: http://www.ehow.com/video_4415670_what-no-set-game-set.html
