They will dab the picture and the word the same color. They will use a different color paint dabber to dab each pair. Crayons can be used if you don’t have paint dabbers.
Roll, Blend, & Dab – A Blending Game (Literacy Station or Small Group) Two to four children play this game.
The children will use 1 game sheet, 1 dot or number cube/dice, & 1 different color paint dabber per child. The children will take turns rolling the dice. The child will pick any word that hasn’t been covered in the row of the number they rolled. He/she will blend the word and dab it if they can read it. If a child rolls a 6, they read a word under 6, and then take another turn. If all the words are covered in the row rolled, the child misses his/her turn. The child with the most words dabbed after all are covered, is the winner.
