My Sight Word House is another way to practice the Sight Words without just reading flash cards. The goal it to build a Sight Word House by placing Mania Word Card on each window, two on the roof and one on the door.
And to make it even more exciting, there is a chance to steal Word Cards from other players!

2. Upside Down Story Time
Have your child read a bed time story to you! Allow him to pick stories he can read without your help, and read one or two of them to you. Let him know how much better you will sleep after such a delightful story time. (You don't have to go to sleep straight afterwards though :)
3. Make A Video
Make a video of your child reading a story. Let her know you are going to share it with her grandparents, aunts and uncles etc. You can even post it on YouTube and encourage all your relatives to post encouraging comments.
4. A Goodie Bag
Put together a small goodie bag for when your child can read the whole book unaided. Fill it with treats like a book mark, pencils, crayons and things special to your child. Present it to him when he can read a whole book unaided.
5. A Games Night
One weekend evening, allow your child to stay up a little later and play reading games. There are a bunch of them on the Activities page. Pick the ones your child likes best and have fun playing them. It's even more fun for your child if he wins most of the games!
