CVC Four in a row game
Consonant Vowel Consonant words focusing on the short vowel sounds.
There is one game sheet for each short vowel sound, one with all 5 short vowels mixed, plus two extra short e/i mixes which are perfect for English as a Second Language students to practice the two most difficult vowel sounds to master!
This is a printable that can be used in small groups, literacy stations, or as an intervention. I like to print them on card stock and put them in plastic page protectors while they are in rotations, that way I don’t waste lamination.
It can be played as a two-player game: Students take turns reading a word and then cover the space with a bingo chip or two color counters. The winner is the student who places four of their color markers in a row, column or diagonal.
*As a challenge, students must use the word in a sentence in order to cover the space
*You could also have the students play 3 in a row, or 5 in a row according to their ability level
This game could be adapted for more students. Each student has a colored place marker and takes turns reading a word and putting their marker on the spot. When the board is covered the students can count the counters and the student with the most is the winner. (I would stipulate that the word must be read a one whole word in order to mark the spot; if the student has to sound each letter and then blend it together they lose a turn)
