Laughter and Literacy: A Perfect Combination

Everyone loves to make people laugh, and that’s just as true of 6- and 7-year-olds as it is with adults. Encourage your kids to read an age-appropriate book of jokes and ask them to read the jokes to you. If there are words they don’t understand, ask them to spell them out. This way, they’ll build their vocabulary and spelling skills while having a great time.
