Great rolling dice game to teach Word families! Just put consonant dot stickers on one block and a word family ending on the other one. Have the children flip a word family block, then a consonant block to make as many words as possible. Also roll both and have children read the words and every word that is a real word, they get a point.

Take that mosquitos!- Mosquito trap - Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.
