6th Grade Reading Games

Reading is a vital life skill. Not only does it open students' world to all kinds of fun stories and adventures, but it aids students' learning in other areas because it makes it easier for them to read textbooks, web pages, articles, and more. Help students practice their reading skills by incorporating a little fun into it. Check out a few of these ideas for sixth grade reading games.

Missing Words

In this game, take a book that students are currently reading. Give each student a set of four words, three of which are found in a particular chapter of a book, and one of which is not found in a particular chapter of the book. Have students read that chapter, and try to figure out which word is not present. To confirm the students understand what they're reading, and aren't simply skimming the text, require them to also include a brief summary of what happens in the chapter.
