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
Once your child is asleep, however, if you're not careful transferring him out of your arms, you'll wake him up. Then you have to start your act all over again. Many is the time I've patted my son to sleep on my chest, and then, too scared to wake him, I elect to just lie there. Whatever I had planned to do I forgo and prostrate myself with a small human being clinging to my neck, doing my best to remain perfectly inert... Not that lying with a sleeping baby on your chest is the worst thing in the world, either. In fact, it's one of the sweetest pleasures I've ever tasted. An entire person curled up between your collar bone and stomach, covering and warming your heart, all the while breathing little bursts of perfect air onto your neck. It's not hard to imagine why moms love the sensation of breast-feeding. For dads, breast-napping is about as close as we get.
quoted from "Babyhood" by Paul Reiser of television's "Mad About You", pages 154-155
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.
