My wife recently retired from her third grade classroom and has started using what she's learned in a blog: Mrs. Thorp's Third Grade Classroom at www.mrsthorp.com . Today, we shot a Flip camera video showing how parents can use letters from their Scrabble game or a bag of letters purchased from the Dollar Store.
In this video, she shows how to use words your kid's already know to make new words. These are exercises she used in the classroom and with our own kids.
I invite you to view and share the video and comment with your thoughts and questions. It should on her blog by the end of the day.
