Super Sight Words (printable pdf)

This sight words printable helps kindergarten or preschool aged children learn these 25 common beginning words. Created for preschool through Kindergarten (3 to 5 years old). These can be used by parents, teachers, or anyone wanting to help kids with fun early learning activities.

Why are sight words important?

Sight words are words that are used very frequently and often can not be “sounded out” or drawn easily. Therefore, it is critical that early readers learn to recognize these words “on sight.”

Kindle Fire 7: Kids Edition Tablet (under $100)

If you are looking for a tablet for your kids to use for education or fun, you should seriously consider the Kindle Fire for Kids. For under $100 you can get a rugged device with a 2-year warrantee and 1000s of apps and videos. Although the Kindle does not have as many apps available as Apple iPad or Google Android devices, less does not always mean worse! And Kindle’s App Store has plenty of qulaity apps to choose from.

Babadoodle is an Amazon affiliate. We may receive a small fee if you purchase through one of these links. This supports the site and allows us to keep it free. You support is greatly appreciated!

Why We Like It

In my opinion, there are 4 main benefits for the Kindle Fire (Kids Edition):

  1. Excellent Price: the 7″ currently costs $99 and comes bundled with a warrantee and kids apps. By comparison, the popular iPad mini is just under $400 and the more affordable Galaxy tab starts about $150. Neither are kid-friendly out of the box.
  2. 2-year guarantee: This is huge! I mean, it’s a device for kids and one of the main concerns is breakage. If it breaks, you just need to return it to Amazon for a replacement.
  3. Bundled with kids’ apps, games, & books. The Kindle Fire 7 Kids Edition comes bundled 1-year of Amazon FreeTime, which includes over 20,000 apps, games, books, videos, etc., from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney and more. Apps and books may be relatively cheap, but they do tend to add up over time. Plus, once the free subscription is over, Amazon FreeTime can be renewed for $2.99. And that’s an excellent deal too.
  4. Highly rated: Currently, the Kindle Fire has an 4.5 average rating on nearly 50,000 reviews…and that’s not easy to do!

Bottomline: We have been an iPhone /iPad family for years, but if I were to buy a new device, the Kindle Fire for Kids would be at the top of my list!

Babadoodle contains some affiliate links, so if a sale is made we may receive a small commission.

About the app

Peep & The Big Wide World Paint Splat

Ready, Set, Splat! In this Paint Splat app, which features the hilariously quirky duck, Quack and his plucky robin friend, Chirp, kids make Quack jump on paint tubes to mix colors on the fence. Watch out for the hose!

Paint Splat offers kids the opportunity to experiment with mixing colors or match a color Chirp holds up a on a card. If the color orange, purple or green (which make up the secondary color group) is successfully created, Chirp offers some of the harder-to-mix tertiary colors. Like many of our games, this one gets harder only if the player is succeeding.

By tapping on the paint tubes, players can make Quack squirt up to two blobs of blue, yellow, and red paint onto a fence. Tapping on the hose washes the paint off, enabling kids to have a fresh start.

Kids can experiment with mixing whatever colors they like or they can try to match the color Chirp holds up.

The PEEP and the Big Wide World Paint Splat app from WGBH was produced by WGBH, the producers of PEEP and the Big Wide World, with additional development work by CloudKid. The animated series PEEP and the Big Wide World gives wings to the innovative idea of teaching science to preschoolers. Wry and distinctive visual humor, charming plotlines, and lovable characters combine with a comprehensive science curriculum to attract and engage kids three to five years old.
