Reading is key to all academic success. Let me repeat this! Reading is key to all academic success! It can either set a solid foundation for all future success, or if not mastered at an early age, can cause frustration and anxiety in a child. It is our goal to help children everywhere become confident in Reading and become life long learners who succeed in school and in life. Start your child/students reading early. We at the Adventures of Scuba Jack are here to help do this in a fun, engaging way!
Making your own board game is a lot of fun for the whole family. One advantage of making your own board game is that once you do, you have a template for every spelling list that comes home from school. You can create a life−sized board game with slides, musical instruments, and other activities to keep their interest along the way or tone it down with a more realistic version using a piece of foam board as your game board and adding your own colored spaces for game play.
As you may or may not know, letters and sounds are the basics of reading properly. There are plenty of rules in the English language that applying and often are subject to exceptions. This can really lead to a lot of confusion with young readers. Obviously, you must have already heard of phonics books and worksheets that simplify learning to read. If not, then you should definitely do the research and educate yourself accordingly. It will make all the difference in how well your child will read and have a good understanding of the language.
Or if you need a quick version to study tonight's spelling list, simply use one of the game boards you already have and make up a quick game by replacing the game's money with spelling words, such as spelling "castle" or "shadow" to buy property in Monopoly. The more fun you can make learning spelling words, the easier they will become to your child and the easier it will become for you to get them to sit down and get ready for the week's big spelling test.
