"Five Finger Rule" for Choose a Book
What Can I Do To Keep My Child Engaged and Learning
BookIT Program has some reading resources on their website. I have attached some of them below.
- The spinner game attached below is for talking about a nonfiction book that your child might have read. If you don't have scissors to cut the pieces out, you can leave the spinner on the paper. Create the arrow part drawing one on a small piece of cardboard you may have or use a small paper clip. Use a pencil to hold the arrow on the spinner board. Place the point of the pencil on the dot in the middle of the circle, then lift the pencil and place the point in the hole at the end of the arrow or inside one end of the paperclip and put the point back on the dot in the center of the circle. Hold the pencil straight up and pushing down on the dot in the circle with the point the the paperclip or hole in the arrow. Spin the arrow while holding everything in place with the pencil.
- The Bingo Game could be played with any words that you are studying. You could make your own cards by using the attached bingo cards as models. Create a card and write the words you are studying one in each space. Make a list for someone to read off of (read in any order) or make cards with the words on for someone to call out.
