Earth or Alien Word Game

The object of the game is to determine whether the letters that are rolled with three dice are Earth words (like cat) or Alien words (like tep). Attached you will find three dice patterns. Have your child color the two dice with consonants- Blue and the dice with vowels (A, E, I, O, and U)- Red. Then cut apart the dice and assemble. Take turns rolling the three dice. Arrange them in Blue, Red, Blue order. Then have your child sound out the cubes and determine whether it is an Earth word or if it is an Alien word. Have your child write down the word in the appropriate column on the game sheet. **This is a great way to get students to sound out words and blend them together. Students have been taught strategies such as chopping up sounds/words and stretching out words for blending.

February Family Project

Our February Home Project is very open ended. Your family will 'Start With A Heart' - the supplied paper heart. I am asking that students work with their families to create anything they wish. Your family might want to choose one of the following ideas or your child may think of something much more creative and meaningful to them! Sample ideas: a heart person with arms, legs, etc. a decorated valentine a patterned heart a heart filled with pictures of things/people they love a tissue paper heart a heart mobile Anything you wish! Please have your child cut out the heart shape and then your family may begin! Again, enjoy this time with your child as you work together on 'Start With A Heart!'
