To make the dice, children can use small wooden cubes or cut out squares of cardboard or paper. On each side of the cube or square, they can write a different letter from the alphabet. They should include only consonants and vowels that can be used to spell CVC words.
Once the dice are made, children can start playing the game. They can roll the dice and then use the letters that come up to form CVC words. For example, if they roll the letters “b,” “a,” and “t,” they can form the word “bat.” If they roll the letters “f,” “e,” and “d,” they can form the word “fed.”
To make the game more challenging, children can be asked to spell the words they create out loud or write them down on a piece of paper. They can also be asked to identify the vowel sound in each word, or to use the word in a sentence.
The DIY DICE & CVC Word Game is a fun and engaging way for children to develop their phonetic awareness, improve their spelling and reading skills, and build their confidence as young learners.
