The Pig did a Jig in his Wig.....

The Pig did a Jig in his Wig......

I don't know about you, but I love Word World on PBS! It is geared for younger kids and since I do daycare, we watch it. Not only are the animals entertaining but everything on the show is made out of a word. And they love to rhyme and do fun riddle games. Kids learn how to sound things out, how to rhyme same sounding words and how just changing 1 letter can make a huge difference. Kids love animals and kids love to be silly and I think rhyming words or tongue twisters that make their tongues dance and feel silly are fun, and when paired with animals....well, that is more fun than the Pig who did a Jig in his Wig!LOL I look for things that will get my kids to learn and understand anything better! Both of my boys LOVE animals and when I can tie learning and their love of animals together by using educational animal games... I jump right on that! Kids learn better when you can get something they are interested in as the core and then work with it so it becomes educational as well!
