Let me tell you what is working for me at the moment.
We chose a theme:
My son LOVES, LOVES, LOVES super heros. So, I decided to start there. I found some wonderful super hero graphics to add to our activities.
We personalized the Alphabet Chart:
I worked on a personalized alphabet chart and cards for boys. I have not seen any out there, so we had to make our own. It includes words like boat, lion, frog, robot and tent. I had to block the hero graphic here because of copyright rules but you can see this picture and many more on my blog.
Then, I chose the skills that I want him to review.
-Identify/name alphabet letters and sounds
-Making words with word families
Now it's time for some fun activities
Angel loved using these Pocket Cubes from Carson Dellosa.
We played roll the dice games which included:
-Write like a hero
-Roll-a-Word, Say the word
-Roll-a-Word, Color the word
-Roll-a-Word, Trace the word
-Roll-a-Word, Build the word
*You can see all these super hero activities in action on my blog:)
For extra fun:
We made a simple super hero cape.
My son's interest has increased and is a lot more willing to READ LIKE A HERO.
