Ds and I played some Checkers this afternoon. Phonetic Checkers. You tape pieces of paper with letters and other phonograms onto the squares. Then before you move your piece onto the square you must say the correct sound.
I made this version last year – he’s actually ready for more advanced sounds now. Today was a good refresher, though. On the other hand, I might keep it the way it is for dd.
Ds is getting quite good at Checkers. He’ll be beating me soon. Not that that’s a huge feat. I never was that good at the game. In fact, a soon to be eight year is just at the right level for me. 😉
