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
Going back to the Latin roots, to discipline with authority means to give life to learning. Our goal as parents is to give life to our children's learning - to instruct, to teach, to help them develop self-discipline - an ordering of the self from the inside, not imposition from the outside. Any technique that does not give life to a child's learning and leaves a child's dignity intact cannot be called discipline - it is punishment, no matter what language it is clothed in.
quoted from "Kids are worth it! Giving your child the gift of inner discipline" by Barbara Coloroso, page 29
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.
