Kids home on that never-ending staycation?
This is a fun way to learn three letter words, the Montessori way. I made 50 (or more, I cannot remember) three letter CVC words. Then you take the individual letter and match them to the word.
More advanced children can use the a,e,i,o,u chart and make three letter words of their own.
I will caution that you should give your children this activity if they are already into learning letters and words. Don’t give this to kids who don’t have any interest. Best age group is 4-7 years old, basically kindergartners.
Things you can do:
Match words to physical objects. Fox to a wooden toy fox, Pen to a pen, etc.
Group words by sounds. Cat, hat, mat. Ram, fan, dam. You can do this for younger children while older kids can hunt for the words.
Find similar letter. If you group by sounds, you will find a common vowel. What is it? What other words have that vowel?
What you need:
Printer – color printed is needed. You want kids to learn the difference between consonants and vowels.
Laminator – It’s a bit of an investment but SO GOOD TO HAVE! I own the Scotch laminator but people also rave about the Amazon one. Either way, be sure to buy laminating sheets (will work with both brands).

Stay at home, stay safe! Remember you don’t have to home school overnight. Keep your kids’ brain occupied and you’re doing more than enough as a parent.
