Game Play: Choose a rocket ship and read the word out loud. Listen carefully to the ending sound and figure out which planet to land on.
Game Assembly: Mount planets to each side of the file folder. Laminte and cut out rocket ships for playing pieces. Glue Tab Label to folder. If you laminate your game you can cut slits across the top of the ticket boxes for children to insert the tickets
Expansion Ideas: Encouage children to think of more rhyming words for each planet. Once the game is complete you can show children how to arrange the rocketships in each group into alphabetical order. Point out spelling similarities for the rhyming words and encourage children to learn to spell these words without looking.
