While I was on Jury Duty for the month of April, The Geek and I decided something needed to happen so the boys could keep up with school. Especially because they just had a month or so off for our move! Thankfully The Geek’s boss was willing to let him adjust his schedule a bit. So…The Geek took on the role of teacher a few hours each morning!
He is not as obsessed with picture snapping as some people (ahem), but I did beg him to be sure and capture this new game for me! And, these are, literally, the only pictures he took. Maybe I should have been more specific. hahaha
The boys love anything that involves moving around – and especially anything that they have to “find,” let’s forget the part that the words aren’t really hiding…they are in plain sight all over the house…but hey.
Want to get the Magic E Word Hunt Game? All the words in this pack are also words BEFORE the Magic E is added (extra reading practice). You can hide them all around the house or the classroom. There are over 30 words to hunt and read!
Hope you enjoy this with your kiddos!
I wanted to share something I created a few weeks ago for Micah to help him with his word spacing when he’s writing. This word spacer is the perfect 1/2 inch space between words. And, it is great for left or right hand writers! I looked and looked for one to actually buy, but commercial ones are all set up for right handed kids – with nothing to hold on the right side! With the Monster Word Spacer my left handed kiddo can hold this in place easily with his right hand while making the first letter of the next word with his left.
And – it’s monster themed – so there’s extra fun there too. I printed on card stock laminated, and cut it out. I think printing on regular paper would work just fine too (and would have been a lot easier to cut out after it’s all stiff from the lamination!). Just click the image below to download your spacers (be sure to print at 100% or “full size” to ensure your monsters are the right size). Enjoy!
I’ve been called to serve at everyone’s favorite civic duty.
Jury Duty…now that’s an ironic adventure for sure! I’ll be out for 3-4 weeks on this one folks (possibly longer).
Prayers please – for me – and for The Geek and boys who are going to be spending a lot of quality time together this month!
