Daily reading time together with your kids is a great way to boost their reading skills and build the foundation for a life-long love of reading. Stories at bedtime are often the most obvious times to get that precious reading time with your child. How nice it is to cozy up on the sofa, or in bed, and share a story!
Books aren’t the only vehicles for practicing reading skills. Board games and card games are another favorite way of mine when it comes to getting some reading practice in. Have you tried games like Apples to Apples,
Clue or Pictionary with your kids? All of those games come with “Junior” versions especially designed for the younger set. Out of the Box games has a great selection of fun and educational games, including a lot of party games. In Letter Roll, players race to list words containing the three letters shown on the dice.
Do you have any favorite family games that are both fun and educational? I’d love to hear about them!
