Words, Words, Words.....

There are words every where. In every part of our life. In books, on the computer, newspapers, magazines even on TV.  Some kids look at words with enthusiasm and are ready to read the thickest book they can find.  But then there is always the children who do not want to even look at ANYTHING that has words in or on it. Give a child w/ a picture book and they are happy. We as parents want our children to like words. This leads to liking reading. But some of those words can cause a child to panic because they don't understand that is why we use root word games and all kinds of vocabulary games.  What do you use to help your child enjoy words?

For example one subject on the computer with for english with games like working on sentence matching, another example might be a work book for math, and text book for history, while using hands on activities for science through a co-op.

There are so many different ways and teaching items out there for us to use with our kids to help them achieve their goals in school what do you use? What does your school look like. 

This would be hands on!
