Every month, we're going to have riddles and key words

for our ITSI KIDS to guess and be creative with!


We welcome kids and families to work together and invite you to

email us your creations! We'll be glad to post it on our Facebook page with your name (last initial only, of course) and your city!


Ready? Let's go!



This month's activities:






Verbs are words that describe an action or a state of being.

Action example: jump, run, giggle, hike

State of being example: think, be, do


Watch how high Jack can jump.


Write down as many verbs you can think of. Then see how many you can use in a sentence. 






1. Most months have 30 or 31 days. How many months have 28 days?  

2. Say my name and I disappear. Who am I?

3.  Everyone has it and no one can lose it, what is it?

Do you know any riddles?

See below for answers....





This week's short story words: animals, roar, chattering, tomorrow


It’s almost here. Just one more day.

There will be so many animals to see.

I can’t wait to see the lions. Maybe I will hear one roar.

There will be lots of monkeys chattering up in the trees.

I almost forgot the tigers. I was told that some are just as big as lions.

Then I want to see the giraffes, elephants, and zebras.

It even has ostriches, peacocks,

and other colorful birds like parrots.

Tomorrow I am going to the zoo!
