- I was searching for words that are fun to say – with interesting sounds and letter combinations – I love this sort of thing and so do kiddies – no matter what age – REALLY – KIDDIES OF ANY AGE – looooove playing with these types of words and get so much out of them.
- Please don’t be afraid to introduce them – you could even do one a day or one a week or just have them available on the wall for your littlies to investigate and play around with – before you know it – they will be using them in their writing and picking up on more interesting words in their reading.
- Credit for these words goes to Tara Lazar and her 250 cool words list http://taralazar.com/2014/06/09/list-of-200-fun-cool-and-interesting-words/ – a wonderful author and a wonderful list of words to play with….
