Multisensory Monday- Bunny Hop and Scrabble Slam
Posted by Brainspring on 21st Sep 2014
Welcome to Multisensory Monday! This week I am featuring 2 ideas from Dite at Ladder Learning Services. I was having some email difficulty recently and I missed sharing a couple of Dite’s great activities.
This activity helps students begin to look for the VC/CV syllable division pattern in words. The VC/CV words all have a double consonant in the middle.
To play, just print the gameboard and make a bunny (or use any kind of token).
You can make a simple bunny token with a cotton ball, paper, markers and scissors. Cut out two ears, color the inside pink and glue them on top of the cotton ball. Then just cut and glue two eyes and a nose and you’re done. So adorable!
To play, students hop their bunny to the VC/CV words with the double consonants and read the word.
See Dite’s post for more details and an idea for more advanced students.
Dite also has a great recommendation for a game you can purchase that would be a fun way to end a tutoring session or be played as a center activity. Scrabble Slam is a fast-paced card game where players use letter cards to build and change words.
Dite describes the game in her post at http://atlantareads.org/2014/09/multisensory-monday-scrabble-slam/.
You can easily buy the game on Amazon.com. As of this post, it is only $5.60 with free shipping! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001FVPS0K/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B001FVPS0K&linkCode=as2&tag=atlantarorg-20&linkId=JOBXF3YBVMIEEGR5
