I wrapped two kleenex boxes in construction paper and wrote consonants on the red box and word family chunks on the orange box (ig, at, op, og, it, an).

Then B threw rolled the dice to make a word. We sounded it out together.

Then I decided to take it one step further and write a list of words that he rolled that made sense and silly words that didn’t make sense. We took turns writing them. He really laughed and enjoyed when it was a silly word!

If I had to do this all over again, I would have saved the lists for the 2nd or 3rd time we played. It was too many new things at once, which happens a lot when I get excited about something.

I love how big the die are! A wonderful use of the tissue boxes with lots of room for changing it up. I always love ideas like this...
