Fun Reading Activities: Day 18 – Game Instructions 1

Learning to read is difficult —  so we are making it easier with a series of fun activities that you can do with your child for reading practice.

With each activity your reader will practice core reading skills such as inferencing, prediction, main idea, description, etc. AND you and your learner will be having  a great time!

Let’s turn reading into fun!


You will need: instructions from some easy board or card games.Choose one of the instructions and read it through together. Together, answer questions such as: How many people can play? How do you set up the game? How does a player win? What items are needed to play the game?

Choose the questions based on the comprehension skills of your learner. Make sure you model how you are finding the information: “Look, the title of this section is ‘How to Win’. It will tell us what to do to win.”

Next,grab the instructions from another game and see if your learner can answer some of the same questions independently. If not, do it together again. All this practice is developing your child’s reading skills.

Congratulate your child on an excellent job!
