Let your children place their own small x’s all over their
papers before painting.
Note: Be sure to use the blue painter’s
tape for this activity. Normal tape will tear the paper.
Read the following rhyme story to your children. Have
them look for words that start with EX.
X was very lonely. He had few words of his own.
Then along came E and together they would roam.
Wherever E would go, X would tag along.
Then one day, they married. Now X is very strong.
You can hear his sound, whenever they go out.
Extra, Extra, Extra! Now the news stands shout.
I get so excited, when I see them together.
They’re always exercising and X is feeling better.
