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.

January Family Project
For our January Home Project, I am asking that students work with their families to create a paper snowman using various objects. You are not required to use the pattern I have supplied, it is completely up to you! Students may want to make a snowdad, a snowmom, a baby snowman, a snowcat, etc. Will your snowman have a scarf, eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hat, arms, etc.? Your family gets to decide! What types of objects could your family use? To get you started, here are some ideas for common objects that you might have lying around… glitter, seeds, popcorn, raisins, tissue paper, foam pieces, kernels of corn, ribbons, felt, string, buttons, bottle caps, plastic forks, sticks, etc. Whatever you find!

Have fun and be creative! All snowpeople/animals are due by Tuesday, January 8th.
