I created this engaging, ninja-themed card game just for beginning readers. I love to use reading games in my classroom. They are a great way to practice sight word recognition and fluency.
This set comes with:
*Card sets for 2 levels of play: CVC, CCVC, and CVCe words;
as well as beginning sight word sentences
*Directions to send home, if needed
*2 decorative backgrounds to copy onto the backs of game cards
This game addresses the following Common Core Standards* for kindergarten and first grade language arts:
