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!
