Word of the Day

Pre-Schooler Anytime Anywhere

Come up with a word of the day, like “play” As you and your child go through your day, point out moments or things you see that remind you of the word of the day. You might say, “Look, those dogs are playing” Encourage them to find their own examples of the word of the day.

See what your child is learning

Your child must use their memory to remember the special word all day, and use focus and self-control to play the game. They’re also exposed to new words and learn about the different ways that words can be used. These are important parts of learning to read and write.
