reading skills game...


i gave each of the kids their own set of word cards and asked them to find ways to organize them into groups- there were no limitations! afterwards we went through everyone's word categories and tried to guess how and why they were grouped together. everyone got super creative- some word groupings included: words that had the same amount of syllables, words that were opposite, words that had the same amount of vowels, words that started or ended with the same letters... it was a lot of fun to see what they came up with!
