Writing: Family Writing Fun

Thanksgiving Word Game

 

Today's Snack: You can help out with the Thanksgiving feast by preparing a relish tray. Get ready by making today's snack: with adult supervision, cut a rib of celery into eight sticks, and dip them into a little sour cream with a bit of Italian dressing stirred in. What else to drink at Thanksgiving time, than some cranberry juice?!?

 

--------------------

Supplies:

Sheet of paper and pencil for each family member

 

 

 

 

Thanksgiving is a time for family fun! Here's something to do that will help you with your vocabulary and spelling skills, plus have fun waiting for the Thanksgiving turkey to bake.

 

Pass around a sheet of paper and a pencil to each family member. Have them write this at the top:

 

Thanksgiving Feast

 

Now when you say "go," everybody should try to write down as many words as they can find, using the letters. You can use letters from either word in combinations. You can put an "s" at the end of a word and make it plural, to get a higher word count.

 

To get you started:

 

I

A

An

The

Than

That

Thank

Giving

Tan

Tank

Task

 

. . . and so on.

 

You might set a time limit of five minutes.

 

Then everybody should count up how many words they got, and the winner should get a prize . . . like the honor of going through the buffet line first, or getting the first piece of pie!
