Kangaroo Cravings is a fun-filled game that accelerates reading education by improving reading fluency, word recognition, memory, concentration, and self-esteem. Combining game play with the proven Science of Reading, children practice and learn 300 high-frequency sight words to help them read with both speed and ease.
Players pick a Kangaroo and hop along the path to a delicious, cheesy pizza, picking up high-frequency word cards with multi-sensory dancing, singing, acting, and drawing tasks along the way. Play cooperatively to beat the raccoon together, or play competitively for an all-out race.
A beautifully designed, fast-paced, interactive board game, Kangaroo Cravings was designed to support a wide range of learners, enabling advanced students to play in the same game as beginners or those with learning differences, such as dyslexia, autism, ADHD and processing disorders. With clear and easy instructions, the game can be played at home to supplement reading practice, reinforce Orton-Gillingham work, or in the classrooms for small group, full class or station rotation play.

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.
