Kangaroo Cravings

The Building Blocks of Learning

The five pillars of reading are phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary development and comprehension.

The words that a fluent reader recognizes immediately without sounding them out are called “sight words.” By practicing with Kangaroo Cravings, children increase their collection of sight words, learning to recognize words that appear most often in children‘s books and tricky words that don‘t follow standard phonetic patterns.

Strengthening these neural connections improves a child's reading speed and ease.

A game with a purpose.

We’re all about improving equity in our educational system.

Clever Noodle is partnering with New Leaders, a national nonprofit that trains school leaders to run schools effectively, especially for low-income students of color who have historically been poorly served, and Dyslexia Alliance for Black Children, a national non-profit created by parents, educators and advocates driven by the urgent need to alleviate the double disparity of unaddressed Dyslexia and racism.

Together, we’re getting Kangaroo Cravings in low-income and underserved classrooms in 15 cities.
