To try to shake things up, I thought we'd mix in some baking with all this spelling. If there's one thing the CLG likes more than spelling, it's baking! So both Crazy Kids and I made up some sugar cookie dough (Thank you, Pioneer Woman for the dough recipe!), rolled it up in wax paper into two tubes, and then put it in the fridge over night. The next morning, I baked the cookies up into little rounds and frosted them (again, thanks Pioneer Woman!!!) in different colors. Then the CLG went to spelling some words. As she spelled them, I wrote the letters on the cookies in melted chocolate. We went through a number of -at words, and then moved on to -ogs.
|Frog, log, hog, bog....Thank goodness I get to eat cookies after all this spelling!!|
CLG had great fun, and CLB is happy to have lots of cookies to eat. All in all, a successful spelling lesson!
