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 can imagine that someday we will regard our children not as creatures to manipulate or to change but rather as messengers from a world we once knew but which we have long since forgotten, who can reveal to us more about the true secrets of life, and also our own lives, than our parents were ever able to. We do not need to be told whether to be strict or permissive with our children. What we do need is to have respect for their needs, their feelings, and their individuality, as well as for our own.
quoted from "Christianity, Patriarchy and Abuse" by Rita Nakashima Brock
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.
