Today I wanted to share with you a fun way to practice reading with your young children who are just beginning to read short words. Once my kids had learned their letter sounds, they loved reading Montessori-inspired Command Cards. After they read the card, they enjoyed doing the action they had just read. This is a fun way to bring movement into reading! Below are some free printable command cards that you can simply print and cut. Store the cards in a basket where your child can access to enjoy some silly, action packed reading practice!
You can also easily create your own command cards and adjust them to your child’s reading level. On the printable, I have tried to include some simple commands that only contain CVC words like “hop” as well as longer commands with phrases like “get a book.”
