Card Games

Coming Soon!

Orton-Gillingham programs are based on brain-research and are proven to work but educators often find that the children need a little fun in their lessons. The Reading Village games help build reading skills and confidence in the child by reinforcing a new skill as well as previously taught material.

Games help create a positive experience and motivate students without the need for technology! We created card games that focus on specific skills that need a little more practice. We understand that it takes a village to teach a child how to read so let’s all play together. The games are intended to be used by the entire village: child, parent, siblings, and educators.

"When I tutor elementary students, I have to remember they've just spent the entire day in school. The material is hard for them, and they might be exhausted. When we work together, the games lighten the mood and make our session together dynamic and fun. The Reading Village brilliantly taps into the natural instinct for children to playfully compete with one another (or a tutor), and the strong phonics base gives me confidence that my students will have lots of fun exposure to appropriate skills. Is It a Word? is my personal favorite!"

"Games are a great way to engage students in learning. Whether in a school setting with my students or at home with my own children, these reading games are a great way to reinforce targeted skills. They’re easy to transport and easy to play. My 7 year-old daughter loves Tell a Tale. She can come up with imaginative stories all while practicing her short vowels. My 3rd grade students love playing Battle It Out. It has the feel of an old favorite. I use reading games in my classroom and at home every opportunity I can."

"Games are a great way to review and introduce new skills in the resource room. With students who are struggling to learn a new concept, these reading games are a great way to motivate them to learn."

Julie S.

Resource Room Teacher

"I see many of my students on the weekdays after school. Often, they are tired! By starting the session with a game, I can review previous material in an enjoyable way. By ending the session with a game, the student solidifies new material and leaves feeling happy."

Kate S.

Fourth Grade Teacher

“I find that many of my students struggle with focus, attention, and anxiety. I'm always looking for ways to engage my students and make learning both interesting and fun. Reading games enhance my sessions because many times the student doesn't even realize they are actively learning skills. When you are working one-on-one with a student you have to develop a good learning pace and games help sessions flow nicely."
