Word Work, Tri Words Review, + Giveaway and Sale News

I love the Daily 5 and am always looking for fun activities for my "older" kiddos to do.  I love to make fun things but am also always on the lookout for anything I can add that I don't have to make.  Well, I found something GREAT!!!!  Right after school started, I was contacted by Educational Insights to review some products.  One of those is a game called Tri-Words.  Well, my kiddos were finally introduced to it a while ago and they LOVED it!  So did I!  (I also had a volunteer/future teacher in helping out and she loved it so much, she said she was ordering it that night!)
So many word-building options, so little time!
There are SEVERAL ways to play this game which is awesome for differentiation.  Basically, it has little triangle shaped letter tiles and the kiddos are spelling/building words.  It also comes with a sand-timer and a dice that tells the kids how many words to make.  The tiles are also colored which, depending on the color and roll of the dice, can add more points.  The possibilities are almost endless.  You could also make up your own rules.  For example, my kids did this in their Word Work rotations and started with 5 tiles each, they set the timer and had to make as many 3 letter words as they could.  This was a great way to start and get to "know" the game.  Then you can build from there.






So much fun!  I just LOVE it!  Now, here's the awesome news.......
Educational Insights is giving away a Tri-Words game to one lucky winner!!

  21. Awesome! I am always looking for word work/study center/station ideas for 4th graders. It seems so much is geared to the primary grades. I'd like to try the Tri-Words.

  22. Love the tri words. I agree that it's a little trickier finding word work for my 4th graders that isn't too primary. Would love the sight work snowmen too!

  23. I really would love this Tri-Words activity to use for word work. I would like your Building Snowman Sight Words to go with it. These would both be great!
