Are You Game? Reading Games in the Classroom.
Cox, Diane; Peck, Cynthia V.N.
Games and self-checking devices created by teachers to meet the immediate needs of their students can become part of the continuing program of informal diagnosis, small-group remediation, and individual instruction. The reading games outlined in this document have been divided into three basic formats--card games, board games, and self-checking devices--and have been designed specifically for phonics, vocabulary development, comprehension, and language structure. They may be used to teach a variety of reading skills at primary and intermediate levels or with remedial students, while the self-checking devices may be used for reading skills or to drill in the content areas. An appendix contains material related to the games--game motifs, phonics pictures, reference sources, diagnostic testing tools, and the Fry Instant Words, based on a count of the most frequently used words in the English language.
