Lakeshore@ Launches Are You Ready? Game Shows@ to Prepare Kids for the

New School Year -- and Make the Most of Summer Break

CARSON, Calif., April 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Lakeshore

announced the launch of a new series of play-at-home games designed to

prepare children for the next grade of school-Are You Ready? Game

Shows@. This exclusive set of innovative and interactive learning

games provides an easy way for parents to prevent summer learning loss

and improve children's school performance in the coming year.

Lakeshore's Are You Ready? Game Shows@ will be available April 15,

2014.

Developed by Lakeshore's team of expert teachers, these new games

target the most essential math and language skills needed for success

in kindergarten through 5th grade-while keeping kids incredibly

engaged as they take on the exciting role of game-show contestants.

Each Are You Ready? Game Show@ comes packed with six different games

that put children's skills to the test as they answer questions, earn

pretend cash and win cool rewards.

Included with each game is a free online assessment that shows parents

the exact skills their child may need to work on. Parents simply enter

the game results on Lakeshore's website, and they instantly receive

free printable activities that target the skills their child needs to

polish before the new school year begins. As an added bonus, Lakeshore

also provides product suggestions aligned to those skills for even

deeper levels of support.

"Our Are You Ready?Game Shows@ were created to help prepare children

for the upcoming school year," said Patti Rommel, Lakeshore's Director

of Research & Development. "According to the National Summer Learning

Association, students can lose over two months of grade-level

equivalency during summer-so we're thrilled to be offering parents

games that pinpoint important skills, prevent summer learning loss and

are fun for their kids to play."

Lakeshore's Are You Ready? Game Shows@ will be available April 15,

2014, at lakeshorelearning.com and at Lakeshore Learning Stores

nationwide for only $29.99 each. To learn more about these innovative

games, visit lakeshorelearning.com/areyouready.
