Karyn, from Teach Beside Me, found herself with some plain, wooden craft blocks and decided to use them to make this educational game for her son. She had nine blocks that she painted three different colors. She then wrote different words on each side of the blocks. On the yellow blocks, she wrote nouns; on the blue blocks, she wrote verbs; and on the green blocks, she wrote places. She then used these blocks to encourage her son to write silly sentences or stories.
