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 __________________, _____________.
