Boggle Blends~Valentine Word Family Review Game and {Freebie!}

Students need to review blends and vowel patterns over and over again before the patterns are "cemented" for automaticity. 

 Over the month of February, our third grade teachers will be reviewing blends and common word families through playing Boggle.  Each beginning blend and word family is on its own Valentine cupcake. We will be focusing on one Aa patterns next week and the rest of the vowels in the following weeks.

For your students, simply choose the blends and vowel families that you wish to review each week, and make your own class Bogggle board.

Kids make words in small groups or partners, timed or not timed~your choice.  A recording sheet is included in this unit, but you could use plain paper with column grids just as easily.  This is a fun way to develop automaticity of patterns, while working in teams.

This Boggle Blends unit contains 24 blends and digraphs and 36 word family patterns. There is also a recording sheet for teams, partners or individuals to use.

Not included in the unit above, but worked just for third grade next week, is the recording sheet below for long Aa pattern families & the aw sound.  {Click} for this freebie!
