Reading Report Cards can sometimes be daunting, you may be used to seeing a simple grade next to the subject. A for Liteature, B for Science etc. Now you may see sub components under the subject explaining specifically what your child is working towards to be 'on grade level'. Below is a review of Mad Libs a great activity for students struggling with vocabulary, an essential component to reading and writing.
Mad Libs is a game that takes a short story and leaves blank spaces to be filled by each player. The end result is always a funny, weird story. Under the blank spaces it gives you what type of word to write (verb, adjective...) so it is great for kids struggling in reading and writing. The Mad Libs website has free downloads and an iOS app. I have seen the books at numerous book and grocery stores so they are easy to find.
