(Oh seriously, I just couldn't resist the pun. I am my father's daughter in that respect.)
For today's practice with words, word families, sight words and well... can we just call it literacy? I really struggle to categorize some of the work that we do, especially when it's spontaneous.
I recalled seeing something about a Twister game with words, and later went back to my Pinterest Literacy Board to see where I might have seen such an idea. I think it must have been at Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas.
The method was simple: I wrote words that we're working with on index cards, then adhered them to the game mat with packing tape. I did the same to the spinner and we were set to play! "Right hand on 'mat,'" anyone?
I also left some circles blank so the younger set could join in the fun. They just had to find the right color.
