Use as simple flashcards for individual students or for the activities below:
Game 1: Concentration/Memory – 10 different games –
24 cards (12 pairs) with matching backings in each set.
Place the cards for any set face down in 4 rows of 6.
Students play Memory or Concentration, turning over 2
cards at a time and keeping them if they match AND they
can read the word and/or use it in a sentence. The game
is over when all cards are gone. The winner is the student
with the most cards. Keep cards that belong together in
individual baggies. Students can record the words on the
matching optional recording sheets.
Game 2: 1, 2, 3 Redlight!
Add one, two or three redlight cards to any set of Memory
Cards. Be sure to select the redlight cards with the same
backing!! Shuffle cards, and place cards face down in a
pile. Students take turns declaring how many cards they
think they can draw and read before drawing a Redlight
Card: 1 card, 2 cards or 3 cards. If the student draws a
Redlight Card before his or her goal is met, s/he must return
all cards to a discard pile. When all cards have been drawn,
the discard pile is shuffled, and the game continues. The
winner is the student with the most cards when all cards have
Game3: Roll and Read!
Select just the cards that a particular group of students
needs to practice. Place cards face down in a pile.
Students roll a die to see how many cards they can pick.
Students keep each card that they correctly read. The
game is over when all cards have been drawn. The winner
is the student with the most cards.
Game 4: Follow The Path - Select the words that a group of students needs to practice. Students line up the cards as though they are on a path. This creates a “follow the path” type game. Each student has a game token. Students take turns rolling a number die, moving that number of spaces and reading the word that is on the space where the student lands.
★ 58 page download – Last 120 Dolch Words. (See set 1 in
my other product listings for the first 100 Dolch Words
with different graphics to differentiate from set 2.) You
can print it out as is, but it is designed to be printed out
back to back with 10 different sets of back to school
graphics printing on the reverse side to keep the 10 sets separate.
**First run pages 1-25. (Directions, Seller’s Info, Word Cards and redlight cads.)
**Next, place the word sheets and redlight sheets face up and facing you in the printer paper tray.
**Now, print out pages 26-48 which contain 10 different
types of backings (back to school graphics) that will be
printed on the reverse side of each sheet. This will help
you keep the sets separated into 10 distinct sets. All 10
types of graphics will print out on the backs of the
redlight cards so that there are 3 redlight cards to match
**The last 10 pages (49-58) are 10 different optional recording sheets with a graphic to match the backing on each set, upon which students can write the words they read with pencil OR you can laminate them and ask students to use erasable markers.
**The last page contains 4 optional Sight Word Awards.
**Finally, just cut each word card sheet on the paper cutter
into 12 square cards. If you don’t want to print back to back,
you can print out the entire file at once and then glue the
backings to the plain sides of the word cards OR just use
the cards as one sided with plain backs.
