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!

In this activity your child practices describing objects. There are MANY ways to practice reading comprehension!!

In this activity your child practices describing objects.

What You’ll Need:• About six objects of different colors, shapes and sizes. The more similar the objects are, the more challenging the activity will be.• Paper• Pen or pencil

Here’s How to Do It:

Place the objects in the middle of a table. Choose one of them and describe it to your child. Explain the importance of including the details that make it different from the others. Have your child help you describe it. Remove that object from the pile.

Have your child choose one of the other objects to write about (without telling you which one they chose). Explain that their writing should be very detailed so that when they read the description to you later, you’ll be able to pick the object out of the group. When they’re done writing the description have them read it out loud and thenyou can guess which object they wrote about.

Now reverse the task. You write a description of an object and get your child to read the description and figure out which object you are describing.

Congratulate your child on an excellent job!
