Fishing for Words!

     I don’t know about your kids, but mine love to do hands on things.  some days I just have to lay workbooks aside and do something interactive with them.  The other day we decided to go word fishing.  I found a couple verses in the Bible, wrote each word of the verses on index cards and attached string to a stick and then a magnet onto that.  We went fishing for words.  Each index card can have a paper clip or something that would attract a magnet.    I would tell him to search for a word and he would find it, putting the cards in order.    Afterwards we would read the Bible verse together.  That way he was learning to sound out certain words, but at the same time read Bible verses.  You can also do this with whatever words you are working on that week.        

 

If you are looking for a fun snack here’s one that you can do with cheese, pretzels and grapes.  It looks like a campfire.  I found this idea on familyfun.go.com.    All you do is cut grapes in half for rocks, cut a fire shape out of cheese and fill in with pretzels.  The kids loved it!
