Beginning reading can be challenging to teach if you don’t have the right resources. I wanted to provide you with fun reading games and activities for you to do with your kids. This is also a giveaway, and I am able to provide you with the opportunity to win books for your family. I did a similar post for teaching kids their letters. Once your children have their letters down, it’s great to start them on the reading process. Although I’m not homeschooling my children past preschool, I wanted to start them off with a great foundation for what their teacher’s would be teaching them at school. I have seen the benefits of starting young and am now excited to watch my kindergarten graduate enjoying and having confidence in her reading experiences. Now that we are headed into summer, it is so important to continue or begin working on these reading skills. I have compiled a bunch of games and activities from my site so that you would have a bunch of resources right at your fingertips. I am all about making learning fun. Games are a great way to do that and are often incorporated into these activities. These games and activities can be adapted in a variety of ways to cater to your own child’s needs. If you are looking for more resources for staying on top of reading this summer, Sylvan has a great new blog called Mom Minded, which can help you along your journey. It’s amazing that it only takes 66 days to form a new habit, so summer is the perfect time to be forming good learning routines. To help you with the goals to read more and form new habits this summer, Random House has provided a book Giveaway here at Meaningful Mama. This can jump start your kids in finding enjoyment and success with literature. We have been given a variety of children, teen and adult books so there is something provided for all members of your family. If your kids are still young, no worries – they’ll grow. 😉 Here are a list of the books for the giveaway:
