Take advantage of the Super Hero craze and develop early literacy skills at the same time! This simple game will allow your students to practice letter names (upper and lower), letter sounds, nonsense words, and the Dolch Pre-Primer list. Perfect for 4-6 year-olds and small groups. I use it with my struggling readers.

Here's what's included:
- 6 different game boards- each with a popular super hero
- A set of New York City pieces- print one set per player
- A full set of upper and lower case letters, 50 nonsense words (10 for each short vowel), Dolch Pre-Primer words

During play: Distribute a game board and set of city pieces to each player. Select a focus (letter names, letter sounds, nonsense words, or Dolch Pre-primer sight words). Empty letters or words into a coffee can or container. The students take turns drawing a card, and reading the letter or word. If they are correct, they get to add a colored city piece to the game board placing it over the b/w outline. If they are wrong, provide a correction (This letter/word is…) and they wait until the next turn to get it right and add a city piece to the game board. The first player to fully color the city wins!

Thank you!
