You are here:Home > NNAT2Ū (Naglieri Non-Verbal) > Grade 1
The suggestions below are for the typical gifted child taking the Grade 1 level of the NNATŪ (Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability TestŪ).   
 
Building Thinking Skills Level 1 is our number one recommendation.  Building Thinking Skills covers verbal and nonverbal reasoning.  The software covers the same skills, with the same examples, but the presentation is very different.   For the NNATŪ the non-verbal activities in Building Thinking Skills are the most obviously useful but if you have time working through the verbal exercises in the second half of the book is also helpful.
 
MiniLUK Advance is a series of workbooks used with tiles.  As you can see from the cover image below all the questions are laid out in a matrix format.  
 
Visual Discrimination contains 30 worksheets which will challenge your child to recognize patterns and sequences.
 
Meta-Foms and Logix are games using logic and a matrix to solve a puzzle.  The NNAT questions are presented in a matrix and the instructions are provided non-verbally.  Meta-Foms and Logix build logic and matrix reasoning.
 
Thinker Doodles are best described by viewing the sample pages.  For young children it is important to develop the visual skills necessary to complete these problems  (the fine motor component isn't relevant for the NNATŪ).
 
Smart Snips will help your child in two ways.  To complete the exercises correctly your child will needto pay attention to details and work carefully.  The exercises themselves develop visual discrimination and higher order reasoning using non-verbal information.
 
SET is a game of visual perception.  It can be played solitarie or with multiple players.  It requires the identification of Sets of cards based on four attributes - color, symbol, number and shading.  The ability to quickly identify similarities and differences and classify them into sets will stand a child in good stead in a test like the NNATŪ.
