Spelling Words

We're always trying to find fun ways to learn.  Big Guy LOVES to play games. We created this game from items we already had in the house to help him with our goal of learning to read!

This is what we did:

  1. We have the game "BANANAGRAMS".  It was given to our family as a Christmas present but I think its available at any game store for about $15.00.
  2. We separated the letters into like piles.
  3. We had a deck of cards with pictures and letters.  I think we picked it up at the Dollar Spot at Target.
  4. We choose a card, look at the picture, sound out each letter, and READ the card.
  5. We race to spell the word!
  6. The first person to spell the word gets to keep the card.
Its a super simple game but a great way to practice letters and reading.  It keeps the process fun instead of memorization.  Have fun!
