These games will help kids conquer the next reading level while simply having fun. The fun games foster sight word memorization and teach spelling rules.
Among the cool games are secret code spelling games for kids of all ages. The kids have to use a picture code to write a secret message. Using colorful skittles or letter rocks will make it fun to spell out words.
One of most favorite learning how to read activities are with LEGOS. Simply write letters on Duplo Legos, preferably with a dry erase marker, and let the kids build words with the letter blocks.
Another original idea is cutting out letters from cereal boxes, newspapers, and magazines and creating a letter bank. Let the child pick out the colorful letters with different fonts and sizes to create silly looking words. Glue them on poster boards, pictures or letters to write fun looking messages.
One of most ingenious sight word activity ideas is playing sight word ball. Materials needed are a beach ball, a marker and a list of sight words. Kids of all reading levels will love to participate in this fun game. Stand in a circle, toss the ball around, and let the kids point to a word. The emerging readers can simply point and ask the parent to read the word. The older kids can either read the word or make sentences out of the words written on the different colors.
Best of all, the sight word ball games allows the kids to learn reading by movement. For complete instructions and additional learning ideas check out Kids Activities Blog in January.
