How Many Words?

Remember when your teacher would give you a big word and you had to see how many words you could make out of it?  It works for Kindergarten, too!

I started out giving them the word "Halloween".  By the end of October we were finished with learning our letter sounds and were just beginning to blend. We did it as a group and copied the words off the board. "Thanksgiving" followed, then "Christmas".

By the time we reached "Valentine", I had the students go to their tables and work in groups to see how many words they could find, rewarding the group with the most correctly spelled words with stickers.

Today we had "graduation".  The winning table found 20 words, including the word "guard".
