Spelling Game

This is one of Caleb’s favorite games for spelling. 

It’s like letter bingo. Letters come out 2 at a time and you are supposed to find a card to put the letters in. If it doesn’t fit in any card, it goes into the throw away pile.

This is perfect practice for sounding out and blending letters. 

The player with the most cards wins! As you can see, someone is always the winner…no wonder he loves this game. 😝HAHAHAHA!

What are your favorite spelling games with your kids?

World Classroom: Supermarket

I bring Caleb to the supermarket with me every week. I think its high time he gets his own list of things to buy. This is a great application for reading, counting, and matching real objects to pictures.
When we arrived at the supermarket, I gave Caleb the list. He was able to “read” it easily and was happy to see that there was broccoli on the list (this is his favorite vegetable).
As we made our way to the fruit and vegetable aisle, Caleb picked up a couple of things on his own. When we reached the fruit and vegetable section, he got so excited to complete his list!
He crossed out the items that he already put in his cart.
Caleb got all the things on his list pretty fast. He was so proud that he could “read” his list all by himself. I should add more items to his list next week!
