uKloo (pronounced you-clue) is a set of games that get kids EXCITED about reading. The uKloo Early Reader Treasure Hunt Games are a great way to introduce reading, disguised as a treasure hunt. Not only do they help kids get comfortable with reading, they get kids physically active as they read clues and search to find a hidden surprise. There is even a Picture Helper poster to look up words when kids get stuck. The children are so engaged that they begin reading without even realizing it.
So, how does the uKloo Early Reader game work? The premise of the game is this: Just select and hide the uKloo clue cards around your house and there is one card at the end that you can write whatever you want on for a final “prize”. Think of something that your child will be excited to do as a reward. The final card is laminated so you can erase it if you use the right marker and change it up each time you play. There are also plenty of pre-written cards that are clues on where to look – like, “under the couch,” etc. Just select and hide the uKloo clue cards around your house.
The cards are all written – no pictures, but you can use the picture dictionary poster that comes with the game to help when you need something visual to help.
And it’s so easy to set up! Not difficult at all.
The uKloo Early Reader is for ages 4+ and includes: 3 color coded levels of achievement, A “Picture Helper” reference poster, Blank “Write Your Own Clue” cards and Blank “Surprise” cards.
This product has proven to be effective for early readers, reluctant readers, ADHD, ADD, and children on the Autism Spectrum, and it has won many awards!
