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
To fully appreciate what having a baby does to your life, you need to really grasp the concept of Baby Time...Things that used to take five minutes now take an hour. When you add a baby to any activity, even something as simple as Walking Out the Door, you must allow yourself one solid hour more than you used to. There's the packing, the changing, the planning for any one of seven hundred scenarios that could develop, and the going back for things you'd need for any of the two dozen other scenarios your spouse decided could happen because she heard of them happening to someone her friend knows...Feel free to lose entirely from your vocabulary the phrase, "We'll be there in twenty minutes."...You will never again be anywhere in twenty minutes. Ever.
quoted from "Babyhood" by Paul Reiser of television's "Mad About You", pages 167-168
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.
