Fun with Words and Mom’s Library #94

It is so exciting to see my daughter (4 yrs) writing words on her own.  Right now she has “the” and “cat” down pat, but sometimes it is hard to motivate her to learn new ones.  That’s why I’m featuring some creative ideas and activities for playing and reading words.  At least one of these word activities is sure to motivate even the most reluctant reader.
