Find and fill your mind with NEW WORDS :)

Word searches are hypnotic little hunts that expand a child’s vocabulary, word fluency and spelling ability. Very young children are usually given Dolch Sight word searches. Sight words are frequently used words in oral and written English.

Sight words are the glue for sentences.
Words such as – and, all, away, go, help, it, is – are all sight words. They are critical to sentence building.

Many kids pick up on sight words quickly. Age appropriate books are filled with sight words. But age appropriate books also have many new words. Providing word searches for these ‘new’ words can turn a competent young reader into a sophisticated young reader.
Fujimini Island provides a word search on their website. Let your child hunt for words and watch their vocabulary grow quick and strong.
