Practice your vocabulary and play against others with Word Magic!
*Play with your child! Studies show that when you play together, you help to make positive connections with your child, which can lead to school success.
*Take turns finding words on the Word Magic screen.
*See who can find the longest word!
*Play the multiplayer version with your child, working together as a team!
*If you are unsure of the meaning of a word that you found, look it up in the dictionary!
Playing Word Magic helps your child practice his/her vocabulary skills in a fun, engaging and interactive environment! This game connects to the spelling and vocabulary strands of the Ontario Language Curriculum. This game meets many expectations in multiple grades, one of which is:
Use editing, proofreading and publishing skills and strategies, and knowledge of language conventions to correct errors, refine expression and present their work effectively. Your child will spell familiar words correctly.
*Print out the worksheets and make the letter cubes according to the instructions. This play-at-home game is a great way to help your child practice spelling and learn new vocabulary! This is a game the whole family can enjoy!
*Have you ever thought of reading the dictionary? It may sound a little nutty, but this is a really great way to engage your child in learning language in a way that is fun and different! Have your child choose a random page in the dictionary (either one you own, or a dictionary from the library) then have your child choose a random word on that page (take turns from day to day choosing the word). Read the definition together and the origin of the word, then use the word in a sentence!
