Are you looking for a fun way to start of the new homeschool year? Do your kids ever struggle with phonics or spelling? Why not make a game of it!
Spellominoes is a card game, that helps to teach basic phonics/reading and spelling skills. It is made by TRENDenterprises.com, an educational publishing company. This game is one of their learning FUN products that my family has enjoyed during my daughter’s early years.
Spellominoes teaches your child about blends and digraphs through play! It includes:
1. 43 initial-consonant and word ending cards
2. 11 blend or digraph cards
3. Directions to two games
These cards are used to build words using common word endings, blends, and consonants. Your family can play a card game, or a form of dominoes, while building words! Or just use the cards to build words, without using the directions, and see who has made the most! …Or even have an older sibling help teach a younger one.
Here are some of the word endings used in this product:
and many more.
Spellominoes are recommended for children ages six and up. It doesn’t matter what type of phonics you are using as these cards use practice basic phonics skills and apply them too.
Through these games, your child will be putting into practice what they have learned by creating their own words! How reinforcing is that?! And seeing how words are made can help with basic spelling, too.
We got ours from our local teacher’s supply store, but they can be purchased online at TRENDenterprises.com, for the frugal price of $2.99.
If you are looking for a fun way to start off the school year, for your young learners, my family recommends Spellominoes. It is a great way to put into practice the basic phonics that your child is learning in their homeschool.
