My son loves Star Wars so for a fun read and spell lesson we did this!

You will need some small poker chips ( dollar store! ), puffy paint , velcro dots, a marker and sentence strips.

Write out character names and other words for the theme you are doing. I actually spelled Anakin wrong and my 5 year old caught it.  Place a velcro dot under each letter.

Puffy paint is tricky so use a little pressure to write the letters on the poker chips. I Also made a letter match element by making all the chips uppercase and the words on the sentence strips lowercase. That way there are a number of challenges and letter recognition reinforcements build it.

Add velcro to the chips once they are dry.

Play!
