We know teaching our children to read is essential but it doesn’t have to be painful. UKloo is a scavenger hunt game that encourages children to read, as they go from clue to clue. The game features 3 reading levels and a word chart to assist them in recognizing words on the clues. Kids are so busy moving from clue to clue that they don’t realize that they are reading in the process. In the end, children find a surprise, which could be anything parents desire: chocolate chip cookies, tickets to the movies, a new coloring book. UKloo is designed to take your children on a house-wide scavenger hunt and is suggested to use 5-7 clue cards.
We liked that blank cards were included for personalizing the game. Just write a clue in dry erase marker and later wipe clean to use over and over again. Great game to get your kids up and moving while still strengthening their reading and comprehension skills. Check out our brief video review below.
Did this game boost Victoria’s confidence in reading? Did she enjoy playing?
At first, she was really confused by the word list. She didn’t understand that the clues came from finding a card to lead her to the next. But once she got the concept… she loved the idea of a scavenger hunt. Another tip… let the kids be challenged in reading. Greg was too eager (for the sake of the video, I think) to read the cards to Via. She also wasn’t feeling her best with a twisted ankle. But she loved the hunt for clues and ultimately the prize.
