PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This game is little prep, fun and can be used in a center or for early finishers!

Materials:
Game board (1 per pair)
6 sided die (1 per pair)
Markers to cover words (coins, chips, unifix cubes, paper scraps, or dry erase markers if game board is laminated)


Directions:
-Player A rolls the die
-Player A may choose any open word underneath the number that is rolled
-Example: Player A rolls a “5” he or she must select a word underneath the “5” column
-Player A must correctly read the word chosen. Player A may have two attempts to read the word correctly.
-Player B rolls the die and does exactly as Player A did.
-If a player rolls a “6” he or she may erase (or take a chip off) one of his or her opponents.
-If there are no open spots in the numbered column, the player loses a turn.
Play continues until a player gets four in a row (vertical, horizontal or diagonal)

Differentiation:
-There are four game boards for differentiation.
-Ea words that say the long e sound
-Ea words that say the short e sound
-Ea words that say the long a sound
-All “ea” sounds on one game board (long e, long a, short e)


Instructional Tips
When I teach students the three sounds the vowel team “ea” makes, I give them a sentence to help them remember. That sentence is:

“Eat bread with steak.”

Eat has the long e pattern that “ea” makes. Bread has the short e sound that “ea” makes, and steak has the long a pattern that “ea” makes.
