• The Newspaper Game

    1. You will need a newspaper or magazine, highlighter, scissors, a piece of blank paper, and glue.
    2. Pick a page from the newspaper or magazine. Highlight words on the page that you think your child can read.
    3. Tell your child, "We are going to make your own newspaper on the blank sheet of paper with the words you know."
    4. "You read the words I've marked. After you read each word, cut it out, and glue it onto this blank piece of paper."
    5. Encourage your child to find more words they know from magazines and newspapers and add these words to their own "newspaper" each day. Soon your child will have a full page of newspaper words that they know.
