Montessori Reading Interactive Game
Write on note cards words (action verbs) such as -
Show the command card to your child and act out the word together. Next take turns acting out the directions. Your child will recognize the words and understand their meaning after a little practice.
The phonetic words, such as sit, run, hop, jog are easiest to read.
You can also do this lesson playing Simon Says by using command cards instead of the spoken directions.
Say-Simon says, show the "skip card" instead of saying "skip" and students read the word and skip.
Let the children take turns being Simon.
Using Sentences for Command Cards
As reading skills advance use sentences that your child can read and do. This helps will help with following directions.
Here are a few examples of command sentences to write on large note cards. Again, you can demonstrate by reading the card and following the directions. Next let your child present the cards.
