Wonderfully Made Wonderfully ME! Word Search Puzzle & Storybook
Did you know studies have shown that word search and other puzzles can help improve memory, focus, vocabulary, language skills, and overall mental acuity?
I have always loved any type of word puzzles, and I wanted to incorporate one into the series. I became curious if there were any possible cognitive, psychological or developmental benefits of working with letters and words in this way. What I found was very exciting. It then became a heartfelt mission of mine to focus on creating a word search to give our children a fun cognitive workout and help demonstrate how they may possibly benefit our children especially in language skills.
Here are several ways your child may benefit from word search or other word puzzles:
1.) Increases Vocabulary
2.) Improves Spelling
3.) Emphasizes Pattern Recognition
4.) Provides A Cognitive Workout
5.) Releases Dopamine
Did you know that our children are visual learners and they learn best by demonstration and repetition, repetition, repetition? I have learned so many useful methods and techniques through my son’s four years of physical and speech therapy. I created this book with many of the therapy techniques in mind. Not only will this book elaborate on these 5 key areas of development, it will also give you practicle physical and fun speech, language, and pre-reading therapy ideas to utilize with your child as you enjoy the book togehter. The book will be sure to act as a fun therapy aid in these areas, but it will also provide a special bonding experience between you and your child.
