Starting to read: It's playtime fun with phonics
Word family flip chart - use 3×5 cards, cut them to separate letters or word enings and help your child flip to create new words.
Wand for E - “E” can transform “mad” into “made”. Make your own magic “e” wand.
Flip over E wheel – make a word wheel and as you turn the wheel new words are formed. Add a “flip E” to change a short vowel into a long one.
Candy land word game – Use sight words to help your child win in this fun classic game.
Paper plate spinner - here is another spinning word maker. This one is made out of paper plates.
Word pulls – use TP tubes to create little pockets for this word activity. Write part of the word on the tube and pull out the rest of the word.
Word family eggs - My kids love making maracas out of Easter eggs. Now they turn the eggs to make new words. When they sound out the “egg” correctly they get to shake the maraca.
