Try this word game in the car or plane

Summer means travel, and that can mean bored children.  Word games cannot only keep kids engaged, but can strengthen educational skills.  Here a game made up and shared by a clever teacher (Thank you, Carol) to use with her five-year-old son.   “The Sight Word Game” requires only a willing adult and child.

Adult:  I am thinking of a word with two letters.

Child:  Is one letter “a”?

Adult:  No.

Child:  Is one letter “d”?

Adult:  Yes.

Child:  Is the other letter “t”?

Adult:  No.  Remember how every word must have a vowel?  “D” is not a vowel, so the other letter must be a vowel.  And I already said “a” is not a letter in this word.  That leaves “e,” “i,” “o,” and “u.”  And sometimes “y” but not this time.

Child:  Is it an “o”?

Adult:  Yes!  What is the word?

Child:  Do.  Do.  Now it’s my turn to think of a word.
