This game practices reading short "o" words within the word families: -ock, -ot, -ob, -og, -op
Instructions for How to Play:
This game is for 2-4 players. Lay out the logs end-to-end, in any order, with the big lily pad at the very end and the frog moving pieces at the very start.
Students roll a numbered dice to see who goes first.
The first student rolls both dice, a regular six-sided dice and a word family dice that is on the next page.
If a student rolls 1, 2 or 3, they will move backwards to the previous log. If they are already at the start, they stay where they are. If they roll a 4, 5 or 6, they will move forwards to the next log. They look at the word family dice to see which word they are moving to. If they roll “og” and a 4, they move forward to the “og” word on the next log. If they roll “ock” and a 2, they move back to the “ock” word on the previous log. If they roll the frog picture, they can move to any word on the log. Wherever they move to, they must read the word to get to stay on that log. Otherwise, they must go back to the start and start again.
When they are on the last log, they only need to roll a 4, 5 or 6 to get to hop forward to the lily pad.
The goal is to be the first person to land on the lily pad.
