4. Make a Game out of Something when Possible

I remember how difficult it was to get my oldest son interested in reading at first. I decided to make a game out of learning sight words by writing down words on index cards and then laying them all over the floor through out the house.

He was fascinated by the game we called ‘Hot Lava’, where the ground is hot lava and only pillows and furniture are safe objects to stand on. We used the cards as the safe rocks in this game. My son would say a word he recognized and then step onto the next word card if he knew what it said. Traveling all over the house, in this manner, made reading a lot more fun for him.
