I am a second grade teacher in a low income school in Chicago, Illinois. The majority of my students enter my class far below grade level and many have had few positive experiences with reading. Everyday I strive to present them with experiences that make learning fun and meaningful. I would like to purchase these reading comprehension board games for my students to practice reading skills and strategies during independent centers time. They love competition! In order to win these games, they must correctly make inferences, draw conclusions, identify fact and opinion, find cause and effect relationships, choose the main idea, etc. When they see that they have a better chance to win these games if they work hard to learn each skill, I have no doubt that their reading comprehension will greatly improve. All of my students will have the opportunity to work on reading skills through these games during daily small group instruction. Again, I am excited to give my students another opportunity to have fun while they learn!
