6 Learning Activities for Fun Learning with Life of Fred Early Readers

  1.  Treasure Hunt:  Smiley and Bear have been practicing their sight words with a treasure hunt game and printable (to check it out and get your free printable, click here).  I simply modified this game to include words from the Life of Fred Early Reader book that each boy is using.

  2. Tic Tac Toe:  This easy, DIY game has been a huge hit with my boys!  I used felt that we had in our arts & crafts storage.  We have also used paper and foam sheets.  Again, I select words from the Life of Fred Early Readers books that each boy is currently using.  You can learn more about this activity by clicking here.
