This is one of my children's favorite games. They play it all year long. This game can be used two different ways. In the beginning of the year, my children roll the dice and say the letters as fast as they can. Then later in the year they say the letter sounds as fast as they can. This is a great tool to use to help the children with dibels. There are three pages. One has all upper case letters, the second has all lower case letters and the third is mixed with upper and lower case letters.
This was a fun way to practice fluency. Thank you!

I love this! Would it be possible to get a blank version with nothing in the "roads"? My kids had a lot of fun ideas for other Speedy Races, like addition facts, sight words, CVC words, etc, and I'd love to be able to make those for them.
I think if you go to your purchase section where you downloaded it, it will have a flashing sign that says leave feedback and if you click on it, it should take you right there. Let me know if that doesn't work. Thanks

Do the children read all of the letters in the row when they roll the numbers?
Yes as fast as they can. It helps them learn to read them quickly and fluently for the dibels. Once they are doing well with that you can have them say the sounds!

I purchased these game mats and my kiddos LOVE them! I left you great feedback for them as well! I'm wondering if you have any other available? I would love to see more literacy ones (maybe cvc blending words or simple phrases???) and also some math ones!
How would you like them? a phrase on a line or words together. I have some roll a sentences where the children roll the dice and then read the sentence. I love your ideas and would like to hear more about them and I would be happy to make it. My kinders could definitely benefit from that too!!
hi! I have a question for you about your product- how do you play exactly? Is it a partner game? one child is checking for correct answers while the other says the letters quickly? Are they being timed while playing? just wondering how to play...
HI, Thanks for asking. It is entirely up to you. I have them play in pairs. One will roll the dice and then say the line as fast as they can. I do not time them. Then it is the other person's turn. A lot of my students will choose to do it by themselves during free play if they can not find a partner. What ever number they roll on the dice is the line they say. You can also have them say the sounds when they know all their letters. And when they get really good at that you can have them say a word that begins with that letter. That is a tough one, but they love it. I do not time it b/c I am trying to have them build up letter knowledge in the beginning, but timing would be really fun for them once they learn it. If any of that does not make sense please let me know and I will try and be more specific. Thanks so much!!
