Snap It Up Word Families-- Snap It UP is a fun game to practice word families, spelling skills and quick thinking. Each player is given consonant cards and word ending cards in which to build words. The first player to build 3 words wins.
|This is a great game for A because he needs a lot of reading practice and it gives him another way to build and read his own words. Often, after we have a winner we just continue building as many words as we can until the deck runs out.|
|E is a great reader but needs a lot of spelling help, she often misspells words because she is in such a hurry to be done with her lessons. Snap It Up causes her to take the time to think and sound out words.|
|The activity cards include things like bingo, charades, rhymes and drawing.|
Bananagrams- Another fun word building and spelling game. This one is a real challenge to build a crossword type puzzle using all of one's tiles. I have watched the children sound out both real words and nonsense words in order to win the game. E has gotten good at doing her own spelling and A still needs help.
