How does Clever Noodle use the Science of Reading to develop games? 

We rely on our expertise and our Literacy Panel to guide us as we develop our games. One of the criteria our advisors evaluate is how each game adheres to the Science of Reading.

What ages are appropriate for Clever Noodle games? 

Our first two games are designed to be played by children within the age range of PreK through 2nd grade, with 3 levels of difficulty in each game. This enables children to grow with each game across these grades and for children at different levels to play together.

Anyone that has influence over a child between PreK and 2nd grade may implement this game.

What’s the return policy?

What is the Science of Reading? 

The Science of Reading is a body of evidence-based research on how children’s brains learn to read. Reading is a learned skill that must be taught. The five pillars of reading are phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary development, and comprehension.

How do these games help solve the reading crisis? 

Our games offer a fun and effective solution to help children on their reading journey. The games teach essential reading skills, helping to ensure children achieve mastery.
