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!

Descriptive Drawing: Setting

Find a paragraph in an appropriate book that describes some thing or place. Read the paragraph aloud and ask your reader to draw a picture about what they heard. Read it again to see if they can add more to their drawing. Stop when you feel they have included the majority of the details in the drawing.

The first time you do this; choose a paragraph with concrete details like a specific shape, color, etc. As your child improves include more abstract details like mood/emotions/how did they feel, etc. You can then ask questions about how did he/she show that the dungeon was scary, etc.

Congratulate your child on an excellent job!
