You could have them make a book for each letter of the alphabet. They're simple - just cut manilla paper into 4ths and the kids staple their pages when they are done. The cover usually reads: My ___ Book, by ____. We also make books for sh, th, ch, and ing. This activity is great because everyone can participate at their own level. Lower level kids will usually draw a picture and write the word as best they can. More advanced readers draw a picture, write the word, then use the word in a sentence. Wow!
My kids love Clip it! also. To make this you will need clothespins and large craft sticks. Write a consonant, blend, or digraph on each clothespin. Write a word family (rime) on each craftstick (ex. ___at).
Then the kids clip the clothespins to make words. Once again, everyone can work at their own level of competence.
Those are just 2 things I can think of off the top of my head. Good luck!
