I’ve been on a journey to make learning to read more fun. Reading scavenger hunts, playing games like sight word smack… games always make learning fun! This week we turned a favorite game, Simon Says, into a reading game.
Before starting our game, I carefully wrote out several simple directions on strips of paper.
We played just like Simon Says, only, instead of me telling them what to do, they had to read the directions from the strip of paper. I’d start off with “Simon says…” and hold up one of the sentences for them to read.
It was fun to see those minds working!
(Of course, this may have been my favorite direction.)
Sometimes the best games are super simple!
I love that as their reading skills grow, this game can grow with them, using more complicated directions.
