Reading made fun in a Classroom

2016-title1-games-2Recently, twelve reading comprehension board games were purchased for Mrs. McCray’s reading room with a grant from the Cissna Park Education Foundation.  The Title 1 classroom’s purpose is to supplement and give extra practice in reading so that our all of our students can become better readers.  Since this classroom does not use a textbook, it can be a challenge for the teacher to find ways to supplement the students instruction.   Mrs. McCray is always on the lookout for educationally sound ways to reinforce the reading skills needed to become more confident and fluent readers.  These board games provided by a Foundation Mini Grant teach essential reading skills such as context clues, sequence, main idea, reading for details, and many more. The best part about these games is that they are so much fun that the students don’t even realize that they are practicing important skills!
