As children are learning to read, they should begin being able to break down simple words. For example, if you say cat, the child should be able to tell you the sounds in cat by saying /c/ /a/ /t/. When children can break down the sounds in simple words, they are beginning to show a readiness for reading.
This game requires children to break down the sounds in many different cvc words. The game board includes pictures to help promote vocabulary development as well.
I play this game in my classroom and my students have fun, while developing their phonemic awareness. This is a great game to promote the development of skills tested on the Dibels reading assessment.
