Sly Fox is a reading comprehension game for grades 1-5 that students play after reading any selection (reading, social studies, science, etc.). Materials needed include a set of 30 cards (3”×5” plain file cards work fine), seven stickers of your choice, and a set of predetermined questions related to the selection. The game can be played with teams of 4-6 students or with a small group of children.
This game works well because it takes very little preparation time on your part. Not only is it motivational for the students, but it provides an effective means of determining comprehension of any selection.
I have used Sly Fox during structured classroom time, indoor recess time, indoor lunch time, or just when students need additional help with a tutor or parent volunteer. After the children know how to play Sly Fox, it can be used as a center activity.
