Help Kids With Spelling Playing The Game “Be A Star”
“Be a star” is a kids spelling game to play after they have learnt the Alphabet Sounds and they are moving on to the next stage of learning the blends.
Watch how to play the game on the video below.
On the cards, there is a picture of a star with the letters “st”. Your child makes the word and then remembers the picture and the word they have made.
Try and make sure your child knows the meanings of these blend words below as well as how to spell them. Make sure your child imagines a picture of the object to remember its meaning by and sees the letters as well, in their imagination, saying the letters under their breath at the same time.
Here is a list of the blends to use.
bl blue br brown cl clip
cr crimson dr drum dw dwarf
fl flower fr frog gl glass
gr green pl plum pr prince
sc scooter sh ship sk sky
sl slide sm smoke sn snake
sp Spain st star sw swan
tr train tw twin scr scribble
shr shrub spl splash spr spring
squ squirrel str stream
Place alphabet cards in order in a semi-circle in front of the players.
You can make all the cards for the alphabet and this game yourself or buy them in my E-Book, Izzy’s Reading and Spelling – E-book 1
