Fun with Action Words

Since we try to make learning fun, I am always trying new ways of presenting things or turning them into games.  I love reading the ideas other mom's come up with, so thought I would make a Fun and Games section to share ours.

Being the curious little guy he is, Xander has to know what is going on at all times.  He loves to watch me do things like vacuum or sweep.  I decided to use this.

I got out a bunch of flash cards of action words.

I set him in the middle of the room and showed him one flash card at a time.  Then I would act out the action. When appropriate I would do it around him, or out of the room and back (for example, I would skip in circles around him).  Not only was it engaging for him, he thought this was hilarious.  For some of the words, like clap or stand, I would help him do the action.  He enjoyed that also, but not quite as much as Mommy being silly.
