Every morning I greet my waking children with a good-morning , how do you do, as they make their way to the kitchen table.
Carefully placed are the cereal boxes in the middle of the table, bowls and spoons at each persons place, and a jug of milk. We are a cereal loving family, no doubt about that.
If you were a fly on a wall you would notice how each kid grabs a cereal box to read the back as they're eating their breakfast. It was right at that moment when I had a reluctant reader that I thought, "Why should I give this great reading opportunity to a bunch of advertising on the back of a cereal box?"
And that my reading friends is when "Cereal Box Trivia" was born. Pulling all sorts of resources from my shelves such as Trivia books, jokes, magic tricks, brain teasers, and riddles. One of my favorite books for this purpose is "Every Minute On Earth: Fun facts that happen every 60 seconds" by Steve and Mathew Murrie, illustrated by Mary Anne Lloyd.
I photo-copy one page for each cereal box. Line up your cereal boxes.
Please note that I copy trivia pages on both sides of the paper to reduce paper waste. Oh and what about my reluctant reader? Was there any reading going on?……Happily the answer to that is a big fat YES!
