Got Letter Magnets?

I’m sure this isn’t an original idea, but we had fun with it today! All you need are fridge magnets and a little imagination. I wanted Anna to practice a little spelling, but getting her to WRITE is like pulling her teeth out. I found a bag of fridge magnets this morning when we were working on the mess in the basement and thought of way to get her to spell.

The letters have never made it out of the bag because we’ve had a smudge-proof stainless steel fridge for the last 10 years and it’s not magnetic. The “house” has a normal fridge and we had fun with letter magnets this morning!

Some things to do with your kids and your magnets:

  • Take turn spelling words until the letters won’t spell another word
  • Call out parts of speech and have your kids spell a noun, verb, adjective, adverb etc.
  • Write simple sentences
  • Work on letter recognition with younger kids
  • Make nonsense words and sentences like the one pictured above. Try to pronounce¬†them and figure out what the heck¬†they mean!

You are only limited by your creativity and the number of magnets you have, of course

Do you have a fun learning idea? I’d love to hear it.
