What's My Word game:
Tricky Word Match
Write tricky words on index cards, scramble the cards and ask your child to find the match. Make it harder by flipping the cards word side down, then they have to find the match.
Tricky word Find
Place tricky words around the room. Have your child look at the words, call out a word and your child needs to go and point to that word.
Tricky Word Sentence Practice
Have your child wrte a sentence using the word you give them. Make sure that they start with a capital letter, have two finger spaces between each word and end their sentence with punctuation. Challenge them to make sentences starting with question words so they can end with a "?", or ask them to write a sentence exclaiming something so they can use an exclamation point.
Practice Reading (previous stories read)
Have your child use our old decodable readers and have them read a story to you. Ask them questions from the story. ie, Who are the character(s) in the story, what is the setting of the story (Where does the story take place?), what is the problem in the story, and last how did they solve the problem. You could also ask them what happened in the beginning of the story, then middle, and finally what happend at the end of the story. Try to get them to use complete sentences when responding. Do not let them give you single word answers. For instance, "Who is the character in the story?".They should respond, "The character in the story is Zack."
Sound and Letter Recognition
Tape up letter cards around the room. Have your child go around the room to view the letters. Call out a sound to your child. Have them find the sound you called.
I would recommend you listening to the correct pronunciation of our sounds before doing this activity. If you go to the CKLA web site that I provided you and go tot hte multimedia tab, and then go to the sound library, the two of you can practice the sounds before playing the game.
Place some play sand, rice, or sugar on a tray. Give your child a letter to trace on the tray. They will love doing this activity and at the same time it is good practice. You can also do this with shaving cream!!! It smells really nice when you are done!
Using the capital and lower case letters you received in district learning packet(the one you used after spring break), Have your child build names, they can build your family member's names or even their friends' names. Make sure they start the name with a capital letter but use lower case letters to build the rest.
(if you did not get a packet, please make letter cards on index cards or pieces of paper)
Letter Match Maker
Using the same letter cards, mix up all the letters and let them match the lower case letter to the capital letter.
Use the lower case letters or the capital letters, scramble the letters and have them put the letters in alphabet order.
Using the letter cards, build a word and then scramble it up for your child to rebuild. If your child is capable and doesnt need to see the word before hand, make multiple words for them to unscramble. Separate the words in bags and give them a bag to unscramble and have them read the word to you.
Take out some of the tricky words, lay them out for your child to read. Read a book with your child and have them point to the word if they find it in the story.
Dictation with Sentences
Think of a sentence for your child to write, give them one word at a time for them to write. Add more and make it a story. If your child is able let them add their own sentences to cpmplete the story. After writing their sentence have them illustrate what they just wrote. Their pucture must match what they wrote about.
Which Word is best?
Use your child's skills 9 book and turn to page 205. Have them read the sentence and use the correct tricky word completes the sentence. For extra practice have them write the sentence again on a sheet of paper.
Oral Practice Using Question Words
Give your child a question word, have them orally tell you a sentence using the word you gave them. Please use one of the following question words: who, what, where, why, which, or when)
