Reading Games

Go on an alphabet hunt, ask your kids to find the letter that makes a certain sound, or the letter that starts a particular word, all while digging through a bin of colorful spaghetti.

Play a game of soccer and practice sight words (or a spelling list) at the same time.  I bet this game can be adapted for football or basketball, whatever sports your child is interested in.

Have mismatched puzzle pieces or parts of a toy set?  Why not use them to create a story-starting bin.  These would make fun writing prompts for kids journals.

Help kids who are struggling with sounding out words or with a spelling list to learn new words with this simple word tube tool that you can create for your child.

A phonics flip chart can help your child gain speed and confidence in recognizing words.

A scrabble variation is fun for kids.  Give them a set of letters and see how many words they can come up with from those letters.
