Games So Fun Kids Won’t Realize They’re Learning

Teaching kids to read has never been easier, thanks to these 60 incredible hands-on activities. Help your child master their ABCs, practice spelling three-, four- and even five-letter words and write their very own sentences, all while they draw with crayons, sculpt with playdough and build with building blocks! Heather McAvan has spent over a decade teaching children to read—both in the classroom, at home and online—and is an absolute genius at creating reading and writing games that are quick to set up, easy to follow and above all, an adventure for kids.

This book is perfect for children in any stage of their reading journey, whether they’ve had some practice or are just beginning. Activities start with the basics and work up from there so kids can gradually build upon each new skill. And with Heather’s lessons incorporating the toys, games and art projects children love, they’ll spend the afternoon playing, nearly forgetting they’re learning one of life’s most important skills. Help your child practice letter sounds with fun Bubble Wrap! Pop a few bubbles and see if they can pronounce the letters underneath. Graduate to spelling games and compete head-to-head in a round of word dominoes. Hone their reading skills with a game of Twister! Get the whole family involved and laugh the day away as you challenge each other to read out the words on each dot. With activities that are hands-on and engaging, children will have a blast while learning a life-long skill.
