    Teaching writing can be very rewarding, even if frustrating at times. The key is to find a program that teaches the useful skills of writing in a way that children will open up to and enjoy. If we ask the question, "What do children love?", one answer will always be, "Games, without a doubt, games!" So, why not try and incorporate games into the writing process? Here is a book that resulted from that. The five parts of this book are: first, activities designed to ease kindergarten and 1st graders into writing; second, slightly silly and not very long writing activities (this way it is more something to enjoy than to think of as an assignment); third, nine playful ways to improving spelling and handwriting, and to increase understanding of English grammar; fourth, activities that help children work on more sophisticated stories; and last of all, activities that involve longer writing projects, some of which will require a half hour or so of time. As the teacher, you can select whichever activities and games you feel would be best for your children, made easier because each game is graded and placed into one of the five areas above. 52 games in all. ~ Zach

    This is the ideal journal to introduce kids to writing about themselves. The book has blanks for students to fill in (lines are .75" with a dotted midline) with some of their favorite things. For example, My name is ____. My favorite color is ____. Some fill-ins are brief; others are lengthier, providing variety. Plenty of space is provided for kids to draw pictures of their favorite things as well. Other activities include coloring pictures based on preference (for example, pictures of places are given and kids color the place where they most like to be). Sometimes kids are prompted to draw what they like and then color it. 140 mini star stickers are included, which students can use to spice up the pages or to mark off on a chart when pages are completed. A great way to introduce children to the joys of journaling, and strengthen handwriting and drawing practice. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This Usborne picture book has several uses. As a child begins speaking, you can point to a picture and tell them what the word is. Before you know it, the child will be able to name and describe the pictures on its own. As the child begins reading, he will be able to match the written word to the picture. The words are categorized in 25 settings, like home, travel, store, or farm. ~ Enh

    Your child's favorite little monkey, Curious George, is curious about them! The format of this keepsake memory book is very similar to a baby book, but it is one that your child can fill in all by themselves and tell all about their family, friends, school, and plans for their future. Curious George will have them writing, drawing, and pasting photos on every page as they answer his many curious questions. It is great for boys or girls, as it is gender-neutral. Any Curious George fan would love a chance to tell George all about themselves, and you'll love the memories that this book will hold for you to look back on. Hc, 51 pgs. - elise

It could also be effectively used as a simple manipulative for teaching parts of speech. Each sturdy puzzle piece is colored coded by parts of speech with bright, quality photos on the noun pieces. Pieces are shaped in such a way that children are able to only create a grammatically correct sentence which serves to further enhance learning. Instructions provide two game activities for younger and older children-allowing this game to be used for several years. This puzzle would be a delightful way to liven up language arts learning for younger children. 1-4 players. 124 puzzle pieces. ~ Deanne

    This older cousin of the Funny Phonics game achieves the same standard of replay-ability and motivating fun in practice, only with the goal of learning parts of speech. Up to four sentence constructors can play. Durable game board, double-sided player boards and cards offset the somewhat flimsy 12-sided cardstock die (that you may need to reinforce with tape!). Strategy, chance, and changing outcomes keep game play exciting. There are two levels of play. The shorter version, for younger readers, requires them to make only two, six-word sentences using four parts of speech: nouns, adjectives, articles, and verbs. If you are playing with even younger children, you can play with just nouns, adjectives, and verbs (by folding the player boards differently). The longer version requires two complete sentences, each using 2 adjectives, 2 nouns, a verb, article, and preposition. The 136 word and picture cards are color-coded by function and stacked in piles by color on the game board. Players move around the board depending on rolls of the die and/or instructions on the game board, collecting part of speech cards. If they're lucky, they'll roll or land on a space that lets them choose "Any Card", giving them an edge in completing sentences (more quickly and sillier). Word cards must be read (most are simple words and sight words) to be won. Sentences are constructed from collected cards by placing them on the correctly labeled (noun, verb, etc.) squares on player boards. The winner is the first person to make two silly sentences and read them aloud. Depending upon the reading level of your children, you may control the type (word or picture) of card used or its difficulty – or even use two separate decks for differing reading abilities among players (You can always expand play, too, by making some of your own cards to use with the game). It's a great little game for practicing sentence construction and parts of speech in an entertaining context.

    This step-by-step method of teaching writing skills will fit into any reading and language arts program. These reproducible workbooks challenge students to organize their thoughts in descriptive, narrative, persuasive, and mostly expository writings by using the four-square method. This method instructs students to write their main thought above a four-square box. Students then proceed to fill in the box, putting primary thoughts in three of the squares and a conclusion in the last. Each book in this series is broken down into five sections. In section one, students become familiar with the foursquare method by looking at examples and filling out some straight-forward squares. Students are primarily taught how to use this method in expository writing, so in section two, the book gives instructions on how to use the method for other styles of writing. In section three, the book provides samples of the method and essays that come from the samples. The essays can be used as models for students, and instructors could also use this section for reference. Section four supplies hints for applying the four-square method to other subject areas, as well as to a longer research or term paper. The last section in each book provides prompts to help students get started after they have learned the entire method. Overall, these books provide useful instruction to students who are visual learners and also to students who just need help organizing and focusing their writing. This unique approach to teaching basic writing skills will help students understand their writing and how to structure it better. The books with CDs are revised and updated versions that include an enhanced CD of printable PDFs of additional material – examples, activities, and writing exercises. The book for Early Learners focuses on introducing and explaining the method and simply illustrating its use through drawing and dictation. ~ Rachel

    Teaching your child to read can sometimes be a challenge—so let the Reading Game lend a hand! If your child likes to be read to, is familiar with letters, and shows interest in storytime by pretending to read or wants words pointed out while reading – then you are ready for this game. This award winning game is by Kenneth Hodkinson, the author of the Wordly Wise program. This game introduces children to 180 sight words and helps them memorize and remember those words through playing a simple memory game. The sight words found in this game are taken from the Dolch Word List for PK through 1st and from "100 most commonly used English words from the Reading Teacher's Book of Lists by Fry". This game can even be used in classroom or tutoring situations since it is written to meet Common Core Reading Standards for Literature and Informational Text for Kindergarten and 1st grades.

    So, how easy is it? There are six readers that use 30 words each. There are 60 word cards (two of each word) that correspond to each book. Place ten cards (two each of five words that are listed in the Rules and Teacher's Guide) face down on the table. Two players take turns flipping the cards over until one gets a match. When a match is made, the player says the word several times in a clear voice. Do this until all five words have their match, then shuffle and play again. Play with the first set of five words until the child can read all five of them without difficulty. Repeat this same process with the next list of five words. Children are asked to read test sentences after every other word group in order to keep all the words fresh. After going through all 30 words, the child is then ready to read the story book. Follow this same procedure for the words for each of the six storybooks. Words from previous books are used along with new words in subsequent stories.

    The six storybooks found in the game are very simple to read. They are all printed in lower case letters except for the "I" and there is no punctuation. Children will know that it is the end of a sentence simply because the line ends, and breaks between sentences indicate pauses. The Reading Game includes all six storybooks and six decks of corresponding word cards (60 each) along with a Rules and Teacher's Guide. Downloadable worksheets are available at the publisher's website (thereadinggame.com) – pre/post sight word assessments, test sentence worksheets, class recording sheets for the assessments and test sentences.

    You will still want to do phonics and there is a short section of teacher's guide devoted to implementing phonics in with the material found in the game. Children will encounter sight words in everything they read, and this game will enable them to tackle some of that reading with more confidence. – Donna
