What educators are saying

My students loved this activity. I liked how there was a reminder at the top of the paper what color order to follow for the dice.
The kids love this game. They were able to work together to roll the three dice and play a great cooperative game.


CVC Words center your students will LOVE that provides a lot of CVC word blending and reading practice for short vowels! Such a fun game for small groups, literacy centers, or even at home!

**Check out the preview**

These are now available in a big, fun BUNDLE of word rolls!

You can also get this in the Phonics Word Rolls MEGA Growing Bundle to save even more!

Students roll the dice to make a CVC word. They roll the 3 dice and keep the dice in the right color order (yellow, pink, green) which they'll easily remember after a few rolls to build CVC words. There is the first letter of the color order in the top right corner of their paper to remind them as well - and you can have them color those in before they start too for even more support. A student directions sheet is also included you can lay out.

So many CVC words are possible so they'll get A LOT of reading practice!!

After they roll the dice, they read the word they made. If it is a real word and on their sheet, they COLOR it in. You can give students their own sheet to color in or have students share a sheet and each use a certain color (for example, Student A colors in pictures red and Student B colors in pictures blue) and the first to get a line wins! I recommend giving them their own sheet because there may be so much blocking that no one wins. You can also play where they fill the sheet and whoever has the most wins.

There is also a Roll and COVER version of each gameboard in full color so students can use these again and again. Students will need their own color marker/piece (I recommend counting cubes or red/yellow counters) so when they roll a word, they cover it. It's up to you if you want to allow bumping or not! Bumping is when a child gets a spot that is already covered and can bump the other person off.

There are 3 game boards for the on-level activity [20 pictures per board] included (each coming in both full color and black/white) and 4 below level game boards [12 pictures per board] included.

There are so many fun ways to play this super fun reading game!


I added 2 on-level new game boards AND 2 challenge (above-level) game boards. All of the 4 new boards come in both Roll & Cover and Roll & Color. If you've already purchased this, redownload to get them free! Thanks!!
