Games to Go: Silly Mistakes

Read a familiar poem or story.

Make any kind of Silly Mistake that will be obvious to your child.


For example:

You might replace a word with

Jack and Jill went up the pickle.

Jack climbed up the beanstalk and found the
penguin’s house.

You might say the words in the
wrong order:

The first little pig built a straw of house.

Snowman the Frosty had to hurry on his way.

You might say a word with the wrong first sound; or
swap sounds:

The clock struck one, The mouse ran down,
Dickory, Hickory Hock.

Old Mac Donald had a farm.

Goodnight moon.
Goodnight cow jumping over the joon.

Ask your child to catch your error! (Silly Mom or Dad.)
