Educators Love Clever Noodle Games

“Games help children practice more, lower their anxiety—and they're fun!”

Kaya Henderson, Former Chancellor, DC Public Schools

“I was able to play-test Kangaroo Cravings with over 30 students, and they absolutely loved it!”

Candace Spencer, 1st Grade Teacher, DC Public Schools

"I know what kids need to learn to read. Kangaroo Cravings is awesome. My students want to keep playing. It makes me so happy to see them moving, laughing and learning. Every teacher in America needs to throw away flashcards and use this game instead!"

Gina Sandrzyk, First Grade Teacher, National Literacy Expert, Illinois

"It's such a simple concept but how it teaches is genius - and really aligned to brain science on how kids learn to read. Our kids love Kangaroo Cravings and are deeply engaged when playing. Our teachers say the game is highly effective and increasing practice."

Christopher Painter, Principal, Discovery Elementary, Loudon County Public Schools

"Every K-2 classroom should have this game and use it to complement their Science of Reading curriculum as a practice and reinforcement tool."

Kate Noonan - Vice President, The Reading League Washington DC; Literacy Director, Garrison Elementary School; Literacy trainer, DC Public Schools; CERI-certified Structured Literacy Teacher and National LETRS Professional Learning Facilitator

"We saw such great impact in our classrooms and our teachers loved it so we bought the games for our whole school district."

Melissa Kim, Former Deputy Chancellor, DC Public Schools; Former Chief Academic Officer, KIPP DC
