In honor of Jenny Matlocks Alphabe-Thursday
The After School Kids and I played Scrabble with a little twist, our first word had to start with the letter R!
For the start of this I placed all the letters out face up and gave each child the letter R. The youngest went first....she quickly chose her "R" word. She is in Kindergarten so we worked together sounding it out as we found each letter.
She told me that she loves loves loves rainbows like Dorthy from Wizard of OZ!
Now the second kiddo had a little harder task as she too had to choose a "R" word BUT it had to be able to connect on the board with "Rainbow".
Little Miss here is in the 1st grade and I was quite impressed as she needed no help finding all the right letters for her connecting "R" word.
Little Miss Sister is in the 4th grade she found and claimed her spot on the board while her baby sister was still thinking...made her so mad...I had to remind her "Patience Please"
Last but not least...this beauty too took her time as she was eager to place a connecting "R" word that was sure to rack up some points!
I then placed the remaining letters back into the bag and we went on and played the rest of the game as normal....
I sure had fun with the letter "R" as we creatively participated in
