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 __________________,   _____________.

    If you are unsure with the process, the best method to check on would be to inquire in the VA office in order to visit the Veteran Affairs’ website Fleetwood Mac Upcoming Tour hence, consolidating an individual loan which has
    a federal loan would boost the overall interest on the loan.

    Maybe give their ages and whether or not they are still at home living with you.

    Ask good questions that relate to what is seen in the profile, such as those related
    to interests or hobbies, which should help start-up a conversation. However, the cat’s
    got your tongue and you’re at a loss for words.
