Grades 1 through 3
On separate index cards, write the letters of the alphabet (for “Q” write “QU”). Sort the consonants into one pile and the vowels into another. Shuffle the cards and invite your child to draw three consonants and two vowels from the piles.
Using these five letters, encourage her to come up with as many different words as she can.
To add a little variety, you can have more than one player participate or impose a time limit on the game. After each player is finished, award five points for five letter words, four points for four letter words, three points for three lette words, etc.
