Final Syllable -le

Final syllable -le can be so hard to teach and to be honest I kinda dread those lessons.  Some kids are born with a gene that makes them spell words -el  No Matter What!!  It can be so frustrating for them and ME.  When I saw the lesson in my first grade teacher manual I was very apprehensive to say the least!  Are you kidding me??  It is hard enough for second graders I couldn't imagine first graders.   I decided to tackle this lesson head on.  I took the bull by the horns.  I was not going to let this concept defeat me or my kiddos.  And you know what?  It went really well.  Shockingly well.   After watching a couple of youtube videos on the concept and making an anchor chart together I had my kiddos play this game I found {here} for FREE!  My class loved it.  They had to read the word they landed on and write the word using the doodlebuddy app on the ipad.   If you are going to be teaching this skill, I highly recommend trying out this fun game.
