We play simple games like this to help our 2 year old with reading. She loves these games, and they last only a couple minutes, so she never gets bored or feels like it’s ‘learning’!
We usually have a pile of animals or something, and the word cards. I’ll tell her what one says and show it to her, and ask her to match the animal to it. After we’ve done that, if she still wants to do more, I spread out the word cards and get her to match them, helping her if she doesn’t remember what they say. It’s mostly just to get her to look at the cards and be told what they say, in a fun way! The trick is to stop before the child is bored, so they always want to do it and don’t associate it with boredom.
