Dice Game

There are lots of ways to ‘get into’ a book… Here’s a fun way to help your child learn to pay attention to various elements of the text and its meaning.

Choose a book that he/she has read whether alone or with someone else.

Have your child roll a die. Then ask the question below for the number he/she rolled.

1 – Where does the story happen?

2 – Who is the author of the story?

3 – How many full stops can you find in the book?

4 – Who are the main characters in the story?

5 – Which is your favourite page? Why?

6 – What other types of punctuation can you find?

Just a hint… ‘Right answers’ are not as important as the detective work it may take to find the answers in the story.
