Levels 1 - 5
Use your child's Core5 level as a guide and build reading skills through these at-home activities for kindergarten.
Level 1 - Play games to practice rhyming and categorizing! Say a word, like log, and see if your child can come up with words that rhyme, like dog or hog. Or, give them a catergory, such as animals, and see how many he/she can think of.
Level 2 - Play games to build sound awarness and vocabulary as you look for objects around you. Say a sound, like /m/, and see if your child can find soemthing that starts with that sound.
Level 3 - Continue to build sound awarness and vocabulary by counting sounds of objects around you (/d/-/i/-/sh/ has 3 sounds!), and look for common sight words in books.
Level 4 - Go on a sound treasure hunt. Pick a sound, like /p/, and see how many things your child can find that begin or end witht hat sound.
Level 5 - READ together! Find consonant-vowel-conconant (cvc) words like lap and hat, and common sight words, like said and come, for him/her to read on their own.
