Ways to make reading and writing fun in a home school

 In a homeschool, new creative ideas and fun activities improve the vision of the kids and increase self-confidence without getting them bored.

Reading and writing are two educational methods which are much boring for some types of learners. Especially the audio, kinesthetic learners, reading, and writing is very boring work. And sometimes reinforcement on it could stop a child to learn.Actually, some student who can't read and write properly may be phobic of reading and write.

Encouragement and easy activities will cure phobia and develop their interest in these activities
In a homeschool, parents or home tutors can make reading and write more colorful, easy according to learning capacity of the child. As a homeschooled mom, I  just give them outlines or idea's and they mostly make worksheets themselves.In a homeschool,  children need motivation and encouragement for the creativity and self-empowerment.
Here are some activities that could be used in a home school to make them read and write.

1.Reading/Writing Activity 

                                  Or get 11+ English - Practice Papers
1.Make a Flower and write names of all colors in petals. Then ask the child to read and color the Patel.
2. Color the Patels of a flower and say to him/her to write the names of colors.And appreciate child's work after completing the task.

1. Write the names of some things on a paper and ask the child to find the things in the home.
2. Cut some pictures of things from the newspaper and ask the child to write the name of the things. As I was teaching two languages of my homeschooler so he wrote the names in both languages.

Play a scrabble game on a paper with the child.
For that the name of anything in the equal small boxes. Ask the child to read and the child will think the name of anything using one of the letters from the previous letters in boxes and will write. and then again your turn. Look at the picture to understand a whole process.  

 7.Labeling and reading labels.

Labels of the food packaging, and on the toys are in hand activity. If a child still doesn't find interest in reading and writing read yourself loudly the labels of the items and sometimes make some toys or food items and do labeling of that things. 
  There is no end of the activities to be used in home school and preschool. You could try one of these or all.These all are very simple and easy. 
what other activities do you use? Will be great if you share your idea's with other readers.
