Spelling fun with Bananagram

We recently purchased the Bananagrams (basically scrabble in a cool banana pouch) that has 144 letter tiles so we could use the tiles for spelling practice.

I love the weight of the tiles -- they have real substance which provides nice sensory input. Unfortunately the letters are in all caps, but we'll work on that next.

I think it would be even more fun to have real 1" ceramic tiles to use with letters written in wet-erase markers!!!!

Today we worked on the "i_e" word patterns. Here are the word endings we laid out with the tiles:


We selected these consonants to experiment with as beginning sounds for these word endings:

  • b, d, f, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, r, s, t, v, w

Here are the words the kids "cooked up" and recognized as real words using those "ingredients:

  • bike, bite
  • dice, dime, dine, dire, dive
  • file, fine, fire, five
  • hide, hike, hive,
  • jive
  • kite
  • lice, like, lime, live
  • mice, mike, mile, mime, mine
  • nice, nile, nine
  • pile, pine, pipe
  • rice, ride, ripe
  • side, site
  • tide, tile, time, tire
  • vine
  • wine, wipe
