Pumpkin Fun to Share

Here's a game for your literacy center.

Directions aren't included--it's self-explanatory, I think. I will use it with each of my four small groups, differentiating slightly based on what they need. One group will simply roll, say the letter and sound, put a unifix cube on it. Other groups will say the letter name, sound and a word that begins with that sound. A final group will do all of that AND use the word they come up with in a sentence. If they roll the letter again and can name it, etc, they can "crown" the cube and that cube cannot be bumped. First person to have all of his cubes on the board wins. I like to use these cubes as dice:

If you haven't used these, you don't know what you're missing! They are SO handy! It's great to be able to make them into ANY kind of dice, for any game. Plus they're QUIET! Happy rolling!
