Today I am posting pictures of a game I created and that we played in March last year. I thought that today is surely the best day to post these rather old photos, 'cause today is Dr. Seuss' birthday!
This little project was (once again) inspired by the wonderfully creative Katherine Marie and her Green Eggs and Ham fun (Want to see, click here).
Big One LOVED this game, especially because it involved the usually forbidden Smarties. (Big One is mostly gluten and dairy free, so these are a real treat!). And what a fun way to practice blended sounds. Throw the dice, move your counter, and if you land on an egg white (or green) in this case, turn it over and say the blended sound. If correct and you are lucky, you get to eat a Smartie.
This book was a huge hit in our home a few years back. I have been trying to recall how old Big One was when I had to read this story over and over and over again...:). I think he was about five. If you don't have this one on your book shelf, try your local library. They are sure to have it - it's a classic.
