Word Games Craft for Homeschooling

Oh, homeschool, how you stretch me. Without going into details or methods, I wanted to fun-up our spelling and writing sessions at Little Luithaus School for Extraordinary Children.

I searched the letter distribution of a standard Scrabble game, then used heavy cardstock and my cricut to cut all of these letters out. But you can do this without a cricut. Easy peasy.

Word Games Craft

You will need

  • heavy cardstock and a cricut OR
  • stickers or cute handwriting
  • leftover business cards or cards or any small rectangular item of uniform size.

Using a cricut: 

Cut all letters at 2 inches, in a plain script

Cut 80 2.5-inch rectangles.

Adhere the letters to the rectangles.

Without a Cricut or other cutting machine:

Adhere your stickers to the business cards or other shapes. One can even purchase uniformly sized rectangles, if one was so inclined.

For vowel blend and constanant blend, made bigger rectangles.

I created the following for now and will continue to make them as the need arises.

Uses:

  1. A simple way to use them is to choose a bunch of letters and your child to make as many words as possible with them. Arranging the letters.
  2. Choose ai and ay or ee and ea (or other sets) and ask for certain lists of words using those blends.
  3. We created a large, simple version of Scrabble, too, so that every aged child can play the game with varying degrees of difficulty.

What other ways can you think of to make a craft for fun and brain growing?
