word point...

Are there any words your kids can read or recognize? I've been working on some simple words with my kids such as mom, dad, dog, cat, apple and others. Start working with your kids on word recognition and then test their knowledge with this Take Ten activity.

Word Point

Here's what you do:

1.) Ask your kids to choose a book to read.

2.) Read the book to them.

3.) When you come across a word you know they should recognize ask them to find it and point it out in the sentence.

4.) Watch the look of satisfaction on their faces when they find the word!

My 2 and 3 year old were both able to do this. Never underestimate what your kids can do. Start working with them early so it's easy for them later!

P.S. If your kids know all the letters and letter sounds they can read a lot of words by sounding them out!
