If your child is anything like mine he or she gets bored real easy, especially when they are learning about letter blends. So when I hear the words, "Mom, this is boring", that is my cue to come up with a fun game. I created a dice game called roll a blend.
I made my own dice, there are easy instructions on the internet. After I put them all together I wrote 3 letter blends on one and two letter blends on the other. The three letter blends I am using are -Str, -Shr, -Spl, -Scr, -Spr and -Thr. On the other die, I picked 6 two letter blends and wrote them on each side of the die. Here is a list of two letter blends.
Its game time! Just roll the die and say the blend. That's it! I only use one at a time, for an example right now we are working on three letter blends, so I will be using the three letter blend die. I made the three letter blend die a little big. I did this because my son loves to throw things, so he can throw the die and it can land on the floor, he gets a big kick out of that. The little one will probably work best on the table.
What letter blend games do you play? Let me know in the comments.
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
