Now, give him a Hulk and tell him to smash words....he thinks that is the best thing EVER!
It's very simple... write words on folded papers (Hulk doesn't like the color pink either), and say something like "Hulk smash the word "duck!"
Hulk is in search...
Laughter will follow:), especially if you dramatically mourn the loss of the "duck."
This game was a smashing hit for sure! (Yes, pun intended)
Here is another game from our My Father's World curriculum that we played at the end of week 4:
There are 10 sentences on those pre-printed papers with actions for him to perform (but first he has to read the sentence).
For example, he is reading "Get a sock wet."
I love this set of pictures as you can see how they think this is such a funny/crazy idea!
Then, they look at me waiting for me to tell them if they REALLY can get a sock WET! LOL!
There is nothing funnier than a wet sock at home-school. Who would have thought?
Oh, and thanks a lot My Father's World for making one of the sentences "Jump on the bed." He isn't allowed to jump on his bed....usually:).
Another silly favorite was "Sip milk from a mug." Simple, yet silly, is the key. I'm not going to give away all the MFW sentences, but this game is easy to replicate with your own sentences. Just make sure to stick with the short vowel words, or whatever words your child is able to read. He read 10 complete sentences, and then I made about a dozen more because he didn't want to stop! He read more with that game than he had done all week! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! He will be a reader without even realizing it.
