My little precious bundle of joy started kindergarten last month. It has been a whirlwind ever since. I feel like every day we are extremely busy. But this past week I had her first school conference. We talked about reading skills. This is my first and only child. I have no clue how to teach her to read! But flashcards, sight words and simple books kept coming up in conversation with the teacher. So I took her not so subtle hint and looked at The Reading Game.
The Reading Game is pretty much what the teacher had just been talking about. It’s full of memory cards, flashcards, story books and a guide. I was pretty excited about the guide because I have no clue what I am doing. There is also a website to use as a resource. It will help me measure my child’s progress and there’s even additional resources to download and use with the kit.
I’ve been using the flashcards with my daughter for a little over a week now. I love how I can use them in several different games. Some time we use them like a matching game and lay all the cards down and see who can find the matching words. Other times I use them to help her identify her numbers. And I even see if she can read the words. When she gets a little more advanced I plan on using the cards to make sentences. By making learning fun my daughter is catching on faster. She loves “playing” with the game and doesn’t even realize the amount of work she is doing.
If you have a small child or grandchild and want to give them the extra edge on learning how to read this is a wonderful resource. I feel like my daughter is going to have an advantage over other students because we work on it daily. And I want to help my child succeed in any way I can.
