Now that we are wrapping up the school year (16 days left!), my students are enjoying some really fun games. They haven't realized yet, though, that these fun games are helping them review and practice some important skills that they learned this year. Shhh! Don't tell them!
Here are two games they have been playing. The first one is a digraph game.
There are 6 colorful game boards, a spinner, and 40 self-checking digraph word/picture cards. You can put them all out or as many as you need for the amount of players playing the game.
Students take turns spinning the spinner and finding the digraph cards. The object of the game is to be the first player to cover the board. But, there are some interesting twists and turns along the way.
If you land on "give a card" you have to give someone else a card from your board.
If you land on "take a card" you can take a card that you need from someone else's board. There is also a "free space" square, where you can put a card with any digraph.
The game is self-checking. Just print the answers on the back of the digraph pictures.
Here is the lucky winner!
Here is the CVCe edition.
It contains 6 colorful game boards, a spinner, and 70 self-checking CVCe word cards. Each player spins the spinner and finds a CVCe word on the table that matches the pattern on the spinner. For example, if the player spins _a_e, they can choose the word late. The answers are on the back. The game can be differentiated to accommodate all levels. For an easier game, the cards can be word side up. For a more difficult game, you would keep the side up that has the missing vowel. Then, they would flip the card over to check their answer.
This game contains the same twists as the digraph game.
Give a card!
Take a card! Yes, the sweetie in pink is trying to talk her out of taking one of her cards! But, she took it anyway! LOL!
And, here is the happy winner!
So, there you have it! Two fun games that help reinforce valuable skills. The games are fun AND meaningful. Here's a direct quote from one of my students: "Seriously, Ms. Rosenberg, you must make more of these games! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
The games also come with recording sheets.
