Both daughters are very good (touch wood) and NVR, and over the last few years have spent quite a bit of time on Wii and DS games. Several children in DDs class who also play/played games like the various Mario/Sonic/Rabbids on Wii and Pokemon on DS are also good at NVR, but 3 of the other bright girls in the class who never really enjoyed or played these games well are not as good at NVR, though better at English, as would be expected as they have probably read more over the last couple of years. DDs oldest cousin has a boyfriend at university studying for a Genetics PhD, and he loves looking at the NVR with DD1 AND playing Mario games with her (or anyone else around!)
I wondered if in some way playing has helped with spacial awareness skills, or if they already had these so were more interested in playing the games, or if it's just coincidence?
please could you name the free computer games that improve NVR
