This game helps students build decoding skills in a fun way. I chose nonsense CVC word to minimize students' opportunity to memorize words. It forces students to apply their letter-recognition and letter-sound knowledge to decode words. Help the aliens get to their spaceship without being eaten by the space monsters. Land on a monster and you lose a turn. Land on a spaceship, and you get another turn. Students are having so much fun with this that they don't realize they are building their decoding skills! Materials needed: Dice and pieces to move along the board.
