Learning to read doesn’t have to mean just sitting down with a book. Thanks to Kids Activities Blog, we have found some early reading games to engage even the most reluctant reader.
Rachel came up with these story cubes as an activity to help her child learn to read.
They are a mix between Rory's Story Cubes and Bob's Books. She uses a mixture of Bob Books, Progressive Phonics and the free printables at Hubbard's Cupboard for her reading curriculum with her preschool and kindergarten kiddos.
She was looking for a way to extend the reading lessons while waiting for the next stage of Bob Books to arrive. Hence, extra reading practice with story cubes.
Her kids love rolling the dice to create new sentences with familiar words. I think the repetition of words in the cubes helps them develop both their reading speed and confidence.
