Making Words



Ashlyn really enjoyed this activity.  I put some of our Bananagram letters into a bowl.

She had to close her eyes and choose any 6 she wanted.  Once she had her 6 letters, she had to see if she could make any words from them.  I had her write them down on her white board.

Since this was the first time doing this activity I didn’t want to give her too many directions.  Next time I have her do it, I think I will create a worksheet to go along with it.  That way I can be more specific in what I want her to look for.  Something like this:

1.  Make 3 four letter words  ____________,  ________________,  ________________.

2.  Make two words that end with a silent e  ___________________,   _______________.

3.  Make two words that rhyme with each other __________________,   _____________.
