Sep 24, 2014 Three Letter Words I "try" to introduce a new three letter word to my son before he heads off to school. The goal is just get him to used to pairing letters and sounds. I am by all means not preparing him for the Scripps National Spelling Bee contest. :) So, you would think forming three letter words daily would be an easy task, but honestly it is not. :) It actually requires a lot of thought after you have exhausted all the obvious words. I probably should start looking up three letters words in the dictionary, especially since I am not ready to create longer words for the little guy. :) And just as important, trying to do this activity consistently is a real challenge. Oh man...the challenges of trying to educate your child.
