Boys learn differently than girls… and active girls learn differently than other girls! There are certain subjects that these in-motion kids really don’t like to do. Why? Because sitting in one place doing something quietly can be very difficult for their active personalities! So, how do we get math, reading, and spelling drilled into their little minds? Here are some of the best reading games for boys to keep their bodies in motion while engaging their minds!
