The Reading Game

The Reading Game

It is the end of the second quarter at our school and that means our reading bags our filled with books.

Before I send the Second Quarter Reading Bags home permanently, the children have one last assignment with them.  They must complete The Reading Game.

The Reading Game goes like this: 
1.   All your books must be complete and you must read them to a grown up in the classroom.
2.  When you receive your Game sheet, you begin to read and collect signatures.
3.   You must read each book to a friend.  A friend may only sign your sheet one time.  (That means there will be 13 different signatures on the sheet.)
4.  If someone is polite and listens to you read, you must return the favor.

My little ones love this game.  They are very serious about collecting their signatures and reading.  I am observing lots of wonderful buddy reading, helping their friends track words and sound out.  It is amazing to see how far they have come in just a few short months.

To prepare for the reading game I have typed all the books they have worked on this quarter on a chart. 

My little ones keep all their books in a gallon size Ziploc bag inside their reading boxes under the bench.

  1. I love the reading game! What a great and authentic way to practice reading. I may have to adapt that to my classroom.
