Kids love the Find-A-Word game. Hidden amongst a grid of seemingly random letters are words from their word list.
Kids get to hunt for the words like detetives, and circle the words when they find them.
Just enter the list of words to appear in the Find-A-Word game, one per line. Then press MAKE GAME. A window will appear with this Find-A-Word game, including the grid and the word list. Print it out and hand it to the kids.
It's a fun way for kids to practise their reading sight words.
We've entered some words for you to get you started, but you can enter your own.
...parenting tip of the moment
I used to think that patting babies on the back was simply to "burp" them: to coax little gas bubbles out of their tiny digestive systems. But, oh, it is so much more.
First and foremost, it is primarily a tool of Distraction. Anytime you see them on the brink of waking up or crying...if you pat them just right, they'll stop and turn to you, slightly confused...They spend the next few moments trying to isolate the patting.
"Where's that rattling coming from?...Anybody else feel a shaking? Like a thump, thump, thump, thump?...Nobody? Okay, maybe it's just me...as I was about to say...Waaahhh..." And then they go ahead and cry anyway. But for a second there, you feel very clever. You momentarily outwitted an infant.

Small children should be supervised by a caregiver when at a computer,
to ensure no accidents occur that could hurt the child and that no equipment gets broken.
