Happy face Idea for a fun way to learn word recognition

I use this learning activity with my 5 year old grandson who is in kindergarten. I give him a pad of post it notes and have him write the word I tell him too. When he gets it right I let him peel of the post it. He usually colors a picure and sticks it where he wants. Also, I write a word on a note, and stick it to the refrigerator each morning. When he figures out the word, I tell him to stick it onto the object in the house that it belongs to. This has helped him enjoy word recognition, and reading in a fun way.

Once my girls began to know the alphabet, I would ask them to help me "read" their books. I had them find the word "I" in every story as we read aloud. I always traced my finger across the words as I read them, and they would look at the page waiting for their word to come up. After "I" was mastered, I had them read "to" then "and" and so on. Before long it seemed to click and they developed an excellent sight vocabulary.Both girls were reading before they were four. We still read aloud to eachother even now, at the ages of 16 and 12

I do the pointing of words also when reading.

We do the home made flashcards given to us by ds teacher. We work on them every other night.

We are really heavily working on 3 letter words. He gets better everyday!

When ds was learning to read, (he read and understood the newspaper before age 5) so he was about 2 1/2 or 3, I would write a words on post its and stick them to different objects. I'd hand him one say "tree", he had to read the word then go to the tree and get the next note, say "car" when he got to the car there was another note with say " house" it was like a treasure hunt.

Love that idea Coll! We will be keeping new grandson once he is here and mom and dad go back to work so he will not get the preschool like his older sister did. So I am already thinking of daily things to do with him to get him the early education on learning!
