The inside cover of the Birthday Party! DVD includes an activity, “Whose birthday is it?”, to help you teach your child how to build his or her own name. Like the DVD, many WordWorld episodes have related activities that help with your child’s literacy development by practicing fundamental reading skills and learning new words.
In “Happy Birthday, Dog,” the WordFriends plan a birthday party for Dog. In the following activity, you and your child can create your own book with pictures of things that you can find at a birthday party. A list of materials and instructions can be found on the My Very Own Birthday Party Book activity page
Each Birthday Party! DVD comes with a set of printable coloring and activity sheets for additional word building fun. We’ve provided these resources here just in case you missed out or need more.
You can find more coloring and activity sheets, along with some additional games on our Printable Activities page.
