Although most children still enjoy playing games but they must put themselves on a regular schedule to avoid being addicted. Here are some that are fun but challenging, and which will help with language, reading, writing and maths skills.

Top learning Games for 10-years-old kids:

Word games

  • Encourage your child to make up their own crossword puzzles or word searches for friends and family to develop vocabulary and dictionary skills. Bananagramsis great for this too.
  • Play the ‘Headline Game’ – use stories to make up headlines and then vote for the best. For example, ‘Girl dressed in Red stalked by Wolf’.
  • Play around with anagrams to help with patterns and spelling. For example, make as many words as you can out of Constantinople (1697 apparently!)

Board games

  • Play games that play around with definitions and bluff definitions to encourage interest in word meanings and origins (for example, Absolute Balderdash or Call My Bluff).
  • Play games such as Taboo to encourage clarity, fluency, and expression without ever saying the obvious descriptive words.
  • Scrabble is a classic spelling game – guaranteed to get the family talking – or shouting!

Screen games

  • Don’t forget that games like karaoke require on-screen reading (and performance) which children usually love to play with friends and family.
  • Setting up games, such as on the Wii, involves reading and understanding instructions, so make sure that your child can do this for themselves (although they normally teach us).
  • Many downloadable eBooks include end of book activities and quizzes, which will be fun to complete and help with understanding.

Writing ideas

  • Encourage book blogging and taking part in readers’ book sites, e.g. adding reviews to Amazon.
  • Children may like to keep a Favourite Book journal which can have lists of titles, quotations, pictures and sketches to encourage them to look back at what they’ve read.
  • Get involved in planning a holiday schedule (making a list of books to read, entering book review competitions, planning day trips and so on).
