Words Are Everywhere
Kids become word explorers with an interactive game.
Help kids become word explorers and build their vocabulary as they collect words with Abby Cadabby. Show kids how to help Abby fly up and down to identify words and drop them into her word cloud.
You can extend the learning into sharing everyday moments. Throughout the day, talk about what’s going on. For instance, if you’re waiting around with your child as your car’s tires are checked, you might invite kids to look for (or think of) other things that are round (donuts, coins, steering wheels, and so on).
