This is a board game that gives students practice with reading words with the long and short /a/ sound. Each card gives a word and a picture to assist students with decoding the word, if needed. Directions are also included. Students read the word on each card, decide if it has a long or short /a/ sound, and then move to the closest corresponding space on the game board. This game is perfect to use for literacy stations or learning centers. It is also a great resource to use for reading/language arts intervention as well. Depending on your students' skill levels, this game could be used for students in 1st grade through 3rd grade. For best results, print on cardstock and laminate before use.
