A Sporting Chance

Watching sports is a great way to introduce new vocabulary. Watch a few minutes of your favorite sport or event with your child. Talk about what the players are doing, teamwork, what the rules are, what kind of venue it's played at or what time of year the game is played.

Afterwards, ask your child:

  • What sport did they watch?
  • What equipment did the athletes need?
  • How many winners were there?

Discussing the event will help build vocabulary, strengthen your child's memory and increase their reading comprehension.
