I recently adapted this What’s Gnu? game, which I found at Goodwill for two dollars. (It can be found on Amazon or other locations as well.)
It’s a great word-building game that is perfect for both my boys (ages 9 and 6). The goal is to make three-letter words, and it’s a fun way to work on spelling skills.
We made up our own rules for now to simplify things a bit. They each get their two tiles from the “green tile machine” and I give them a card with which they could make a word with the tiles they have. They are getting pretty good at that, so soon I plan on giving them three cards they can choose from to make a word. After they master that, we can add more cards, etc.
This is a wonderful word game that is easy to modify for a variety of abilities!
- I added braille labels to the letter tiles
- I added braille letter labels to the cards as well.
- I also added white garage sale stickers for the “blank” spaces on the card, so Liam could feel where the blanks were.
