Getting Ready

The prep couldn’t have been any faster!

I typed my son’s word list into the board game and printed it on cardstock.

I made one copy of the record sheet for him and a second copy for myself. Then I grabbed a playing piece for each of us and a playing die for us to share.

Dinosaur Sight Words

My son has been learning about dinosaurs lately so he was especially excited to dive into the game.

He rolled the dice and counted the dots that landed on top: three!

He moved his LEGO playing piece and read the word “are” out loud.

Then we both wrote the word on our record sheet to help our brains remember how to spell it.

I was up next so I rolled the die and moved my LEGO just one spot to the word “to”.

One roll after the next, we read each word we landed on and spelled it on our sheet.

When we landed on a palm tree, our dinosaur had to stop for lunch and we lost our turn. (My son thought that was very silly!)

      Hi Mo,
      We’re so glad that you are enjoying the games!
      While our games are in color, you can print them in black and white by changing the preferences on your printer.
      Hope that helps!
