For this week’s After School linky round-up I put together some fun phonics games and reading activities. You’ll find some fabulous hands-on, active ideas in this big round-up! Play a few for summer review and file away the rest for the school year!
Living Montessori Now has put together a seriously amazing round-up of outdoor phonics activities. A definite must-see!
We almost never do flashcards at our house because they seem so one-dimensional. But it turns out you can use flash cards in a variety of interesting, hands-on ways. Check out this fantastic group of ideas from 3 Dinosaurs!
Invest in a set of letter tiles, magnetic letters, or another type of movable alphabet. Then you can do these wonderful word family activities from The Pinay Homeschooler.
Most of the activities I feature are free, but this is such a fun and affordable learning activity, I had to recommend it. Learn more about this irresistible fly swatter sight word game at Learning Is the Game. (My Five is watching over my shoulder as I put this post together; he wants know when I’m going to print this one!)
Have you seen my free word family houses for the short vowel word families? Find them all in one post!
