Put two styrofoam cups together. At the top of the bottom cup, write the word family, such as "at", At the top of the first cup, write the beginning sounds, such as "c". Continue writing letters around the first cup. The child spins the letter cup and writes down the words they make.

I do several games with letters where my students create words and write them down.
-I have letters, some individual and others have word families or blends, written on milk lids. Students select lids to create words.
-I have color coded dice with different letters or letter combinations written on them. Students roll dice and use the green die for the first letter, yellow is next and red is last. If the word created is "real" they write it down. If not a word they roll again.
-Do you have stamps? I have letter stamps and my students stamp words.

One thing I just learned at a conference that has increased my students eagerness is where they write the words. I did have them write on regular paper, but now I have them write on paper objects. This week they colored a kite and then played their game writing words on bows for the kite tails. After they wrote their words they cut out the bows and glued them to the tail on the kite. The kite was a simple drawing with a line as a tail for the bows to go on. At the conference the teacher had her students write on drawn bowling pins--10 is a strike, mini die-cut clipboards with paper stapled on it, shamrocks, hearts and other seasonal items. My students really like the change.

here's an activity that I created for each of the word families we learn about. cut out the beg sounds and the "at" chunk with the picture. children match them up and write the words on a recording sheet.

Here's a chart with words & pictures to either go along with center activity or just to post in room or at writing center. I guess there's lots of uses for it!

If there's a specific word family you want, let me know & I can post others.

Bingo ideas

Clip to ScrapBook #12

When using BINGO type activities, I put the printed playing sheets in those clear plastic sheet protectors (actually the students do this before playing) and let the kids cross out the number, letter, word, color, picture, etc. with a dry erase marker. THEY LOVE THIS! Games can be played quickly, you are able to see at a glance how the game is prograssing, kids are able to quickly change an answer, ETC. My high school German classes beg for this as a vocabulary review activity and once you have the cards made up, keep them - along with the calling cards - all in one sheet protector for the next time. Try it!
