With the holidays just around the corner, keeping kids engaged in learning activities can be tricky. But what if there was a fun way to help children learn key reading skills while also getting into the holiday spirit? Enter "Rescue Rudolph,"—a digital reading game that covers reading comprehension, cause and effect, parts of speech, and synonyms.
What is "Rescue Rudolph"?
The main idea behind "Rescue Rudolph" is to help children develop their literacy skills while they play a fun holiday-themed game. As they progress through the levels of the game, kids are challenged with various tasks that cover four main reading concepts:
• Reading Comprehension — The ability to read and understand written text.
• Cause and Effect — Identifying relationships between events or actions in a story or passage.
• Parts of Speech — Understanding how words work together within sentences to communicate ideas.
• Synonyms — Recognizing words that have similar meanings in context.
The game begins with a short video. Then your students must read and answer questions correctly to unlock clues. Players are given multiple-choice responses with each question and can try again if they answer incorrectly.
After discovering a clue, students need to use their powers of deduction and logical thinking skills to eliminate suspects from a given list. When they finish all five clues, they will discover who kidnapped Rudolph!
Solving the mystery will also unlock a short ending video where students will see the kidnapper arrested and Rudolph saved!
