The Y Box  

Separate whatever Scrabble® tiles or letter cards you have into two boxes. Put the letter y tiles in one box and all the other letters in another. (You may want to make extra cards with the letter y printed on it.) Tell children to take five tiles from the y box and ten tiles from the other box. Then have them make as many words with the long i sound spelled y as they can. They can take three turns, getting ten new letters (from the mixed letter box) each time. Tell them to record all the words they make on each try.
