Learn To Read Treasure Hunts On Bookworm Bear

Ad site button reading treasure huntsMy young readers loved doing treasure hunts.  It was a fun way to practice new reading skills.  And, they enjoyed running from one clue to the next, deciphering the words and finding the next clue…and eventually the end.

Bookworm Bear is offering you printable treasure hunts clues to help the child (or children) in your life enjoy reading.  So far, there are 5 treasure hunts to try.  More are on the way.

Click on the treasure hunt you want – and print out the pdf.  Cut out the squares, and fold along the dotted lines so that the clue is on the inside, the clue number is on the front, and the little clue for you about where to hide it is on the back.

I hope you and your children have fun with these!

    I used treasure hunts a lot teaching one of my children to read. I’d make clues using single words at first, and then later with phrases and then sentences.

      I did that with my children, too. Then, even after they were strong readers, they wanted to do treasure hunts just for fun. We’ve done treasure hunts at birthday parties, too – everyone follows hidden clues to reach their party favor bag. Something about following the clues just makes the treasure hunts fun. 🙂

    My children had a lot of fun with this sort of treasure hunt – while learning to read, and later as strong readers. I hope you have fun with them, too.
