July 6: How to torture your child?


Practise sight words in the holidays.

Audrey is behind on her sight words (Mummy fail - we have been kind of distracted this year) so we got them out today and tried to go through them.

Just quietly it was torture for me too.

Argghhh!!! I loathe sight words too girls!
Pepper loves them, Cooper hates them.....we always incorporate it into a game and i have been known to use a block of snack chocolate and each piece next to a word...when we recognise that word we get the chocolate!
Funny how cooper seems to be able to tell me then! ;)

That is the BEST photo I have seen in ages.
Seriously - absolute brilliance.

The sight words thing sounds pretty bad though. I like the chocolate idea from Bron - hmm, maybe I need to work on some sight words...

What ab,out a set of magnetic letters so she can play around with them and make it more fun.

Or Emily's current favorite game is thinking of rude rhyming words - Mum/Bum.

Or get the sight words that correspond to stuff in the house and a stop watch. Give her the word, and then time how long it takes her to run and put it next to the appropriate object - a sight words Olympics?

Or hide words around the house and ask her to go and find a specific word?

Or maybe we should just all go and eat chocolate instead ;-)
