Ready to be a better reader and speller? Get ready to roll. Phonemic awareness is fun with this word game!
<STRONG>What’s a phoneme?</STRONG> In English, phonemes are the smallest units of sound. Phonemes can be made up of one, two, three, or four letters. When two letters represent one phoneme, this is called a digraph. Common digraphs include wh, th, sh, ch, and ph. You probably know lots of words with these digraphs! Here’s a fun word game to make and play as a solitaire game or with classmates.
<STRONG>Make your game</STRONG>. On recycled file folders, draw six large circles with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Within each circle, draw a square whose corners all touch the sides of the circle. Cut out the six circles with Crayola Scissors.
Inside five of the squares, write a digraph in large letters with Crayola Gel Markers. Make the sixth square "wild" (players choose any digraph). Decorate the spaces between the edge of the circle and the square.
Fold the lines forming each square upward. Erase the fold lines if you wish. Place one circle face down on its edges. Select one edge from each of four other circles and glue them to the edges of the circle facing down with Crayola Glue Sticks. Glue one edge to its adjoining edge to form a square. Attach the remaining circle’s edges to the four edges that remain to form your cube.
<STRONG>Time to play!</STRONG> Roll the cube. Say or write a word that contains the digraph that appears on top. How many different words can you list?
Long vowels. Short vowels. Digraphs. Figuring out phonics can be fun with these dominoes and a classmate or two.
