Ashlyn liked her making word activity so much that I thought I would give her another one only add a little math into the mix. This is what you need:
- Scrabble tiles
- a list of words
- calculator (optional)
- pencil and paper
I gave her a list of 5 words. We spent the day at the beach yesterday so I used beach themed words. You can also use spelling words, sight words, seasonal words, etc. Then I gave her a bucket of the Scrabble tiles.
She had to spell the first word from the list and next to it make a number sentence from the point values on each tile. She had to add the sentence up and total it. I let her use a calculator because I hardly ever do and she loves hers.
Once all the words were made and added up, she had to tell me which word was worth the most. She loved it!
