Activities with 3 letter words starting with A

You can teach a lot of words to the little ones, but every effort will result in a big zero unless the child gets the scope to utilize the gathered knowledge at the right place.

Now, it is not possible for little ones to go on reading books…..or writing down a lot of words!! They will feel bored and lose interest in learning new words.

The best solution is to engage them in playful activities that will keep them focused and also act as perfect practice activities. Here are some word- activities that will enable your kid to practice the newly learnt words:

Name game

Naming something is the simplest activity that will help you to strengthen the vocabulary of your kids. When you are introducing 3 letter words to your little ones, it will be best to use 3 letter words for this name game. You will have to mention something and the kid will have to answer.

Do this in turns, like once you will ask the question and the kid will answer and then just the opposite. This will help the kids have fun and feel more interested in the game.

Q: What do we call a monkey that has no tail?

Q: When I ask how old you are, it is your —- that I am asking about.

Word matching game

This game can be played with the help of Flash Cards. One set of cards will contain the pictures and the other set will have the words written on them. Use the 3 letter words like ant, axe, ape, arc, air, ash, arm, etc. and get the cards that have these words written on them. Show how to read the cards and then match them with the respective words.

It is best to show the kids how to do the matching and let them follow you in the next step.

Word puzzles

There are different types of word puzzles that you can play with the little ones. The easiest one is to use the scramble tiles and let the kids take their time in unscrambling them. This is going to be fun and easy when the kids are playing with the 3 letter words.

You can draw all the letters on the pavement and then shout out a word, like an ant. The kids will have to stand on each letter of the word to complete the game.

The opposite can also be a fun activity. The kid will step on three letters and you will have to pronounce the word they created.

Fill in the blanks activity

Simple fill-in-the-blanks activity will help the kids remember the words they just learnt with ease. Moreover, this fill-in-the-blanks activity will be of immense help for future academics.
