Tricks to Get Them to Read

My kids love to read. Bless 'em.  But when I make games out of it, they go out for blood to "be the winner".

One way to keep the competition going is to have boys vs girls.  Read a page, read the next page.  Read a sentence, read the next sentence. 

Give them a page number and sentence number (Ex: page four, sentence two!), and see who can start reading it correctly first.

Say or spell a word.  See who can find it first in the book.

Throw a question at them.  See if they can find the answer in the book.

And on Fridays, just for something different, read it backwards!
