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
Singing is also popular. Since the arrival of our child, I've been singing everything. If they don't actually stop crying, they'll at least simmer down enough to see if you're any good. They'll listen to a few bars, and if you're not good, they'll resume crying...Still the fact that they even give you a chance is remarkable. That they have a legitimate grievance, and are willing to forgo complaining about it in exchange for a song, is, to me, darn decent of them....Next time your wife is upset about something, see what happens if you break into song...It'd never work. But babies, fortunately, are more easily sidetracked.
quoted from "Babyhood" by Paul Reiser of television's "Mad About You", pages 171-172
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.
