Even though it's summer, I remain focused on keeping the learning alive & active in our home. As always, I try to keep things fun and easy so that the Lil Divas want to participate. One of my favorite things to do is to make whatever we are learning - a game. My girls love to play games so I can always entice them this way, no matter what it is.
Here's a super simple game we have been playing to practice sight words -
What I love about this game is the minimal set-up and materials required. You can use a dry erase board like we do or use a chalk board or magnetic doodle pad - whatever you have handy.
How to Play:
1. Choose your target sight words, spelling words, vocabulary words, etc and write them on your board/pad. We use this to practice sight words and spelling so I like to write each word twice - once with the correct spelling and a second time with an incorrect spelling.
2. To play I call out a word and the Lil Diva has to erase the correctly spelled sight word.
3. Continue until all words have been called out.
This is such an easy game to set-up and play and it is a great way to have a quick review. The Lil Divas are always excited to play with dry erase boards and markers and by turning this into a game it becomes fun versus being just an ordinary/boring review.
What learning games do you play with dry erase boards, chalkboards or magnetic doodle pads? They are such fabulous learning tools/aids!
