Vocabulary Activities

Vocabulary activities help your child learn new words through games and crafts! Your child will enjoy being a word detective in these games, as he finds new vocabulary in books, in word scrambles, and in muffin tins. These games and crafts are designed to encourage kids not only to learn vocabulary words for school, but to seek meaning in words that they encounter in everyday interactions with books, TV, and other people. These vocabulary activities are a great way for you and your child to spend time together while building lifelong skills.
