Fun Learn To Read Board Games

Updated on March 11, 2013

Best Board Games For Reluctant Readers

As a parent of a reluctant reader I was given advice by a teacher to play learn to read games with him in our spare time. She told me to make it fun and pick a game topic that I think he would like. She also told me to spend a little time with the game everyday till he eventually understood the rules.

We ended up buying a Hooked On Phonics game that worked wonders. He had fun with playing and eventually even was comfortable playing with his older brother. I believe that playing the game helped a lot in teaching him to be a confident reader without stressing him out.

Hooked On Phonics Board Games - Learn To Read Board Games

Each Learn To Read Hooked on Phonics programs include an educational board game, works sheets and books that match reading level.

The hooked on reading program is how I helped my son improve his reading. He was having a tough time at school and needed a little more practice. This at home reading program was took only 15 minutes to 30 minutes a day about every other day. The games was his favorite part, so much in fact we got extra games that dealt with reading to further reinstall what he was learning.

I love the program and would do it again. I a child was not having difficulty with learning but just needed a little more practice just the game would probably be a great way to practice with the family and not make it seem like work.

Super Why was an exciting board game for my son, he was super involved in the game and enjoyed the learning experience. My younger and older son played along with him and learned a few things them self. When we first started playing it I needed to be there right with him so he would not be frustrated, now he can play it with his bothers without me being right there.
