Simple Reading Game

by john on April 17, 2003

Our son is in kindergarten and we are of course always looking for different ways to get him involved with more reading and writing. His school does a great job but you just can’t do enough. We enrolled him in a reading camp this summer which I think will be a great warm up for 1st grade.

In his class they have a list of “star words” that are words that the kids are supposed to instantly recognize without having to sound out. As the list is really starting to grow now I decided it might be neat to cut out all of the words and play different games piecing them and a few other words together.

Of course, doing this online would even be better. And why reinvent the wheel?
