Time Well SpentBy
I am especially fond of playing games with my children that teach more than just good sportsmanship or cooperation. I appreciate games like Scrabble, Boggle, Bible Trivia, and chess, more than Sorry or Parcheesi. I’m all for fun, but time is valuable, so why not combine fun and learning to make the most of it, right?
If your child is not yet reading, or could use some sight-word reinforcement, I have the perfect game for you! The Reading Game.
Designed for children ages 4 and up, it requires two players – the student and a tutor. It is a fast paced memory game, it’s FUN, and the results are quick and encouraging!
Basically, it consists of 6 story books, illustrated in black and white sketches, and six color-coded decks of cards. You begin with the cards. There are 6 games per deck, introducing 5 new words per game or 30 words per deck. The players match the words, and while doing so, the student-player learns to recognize and master them.
This video might give you a better idea of how it works –
When all of the words in a deck are learned, all through game play, the corresponding color book can be read. The stories are well-written, they seem like “big-kid” stories. The feeling of accomplishment by the reader is palpable!
When the first book, Skunk, is read, it means that 30 new words have been mastered, and 30 more, when the second book, Snake, is read, and so on, through all six books, until your child has a reading vocabulary of 180 words! 22 of the 25 most commonly used English words and 42 out of the top 50. It’s no wonder children and parents get excited to play this game.
The Reading Game is a well researched, supplemental reading program, that promotes long term retention of words. It is serious FUN! It’s $24.95, and time, well spent!
