Reading Game

You know when you get carried away blog hopping and then don't remember where you found something?  That's what happened with this one.  So . . . it's not my idea, but I loved it . . .

This is a reading activity made out of paint chips.  Genius!  Put the ending sound on the card with the cut-out and then the different starting sounds down the strip.  Move the card down the strip and sound out the different words.
We've had a lot of fun with this one in our house.


  1. William is really into reading these days. This will be perfect... I need to run to home depot now :)

  2. I LOVE this idea! And the teacher in me is seriously impressed!!

  3. Wow! Awesome! Love it. I think we'll be making some of these. Thank you so much!

  4. ok so glad you found this- I think I saw this on Chasing Cheerios months ago but I could not remember how to make it and have a pile of paint chip samples sitting here - that need to be used.
    I have done lots of stuff w/ paint chips in the past- but i love this idea ;) thanks

  5. OHHHHHH!!!! I LOVE this! I teach first grade and we review the word families every year at the beginning. How fun would this be?! Thank you!!!
