Games for Beginner Readers (3) builds on what students have learned in Games for Beginner Readers (1) and (2) and introduces the phonograms qu, v, w, x, y, and z. In the game, On Your Mark…, students practice blending phonograms. In Busy Bees, up to four students take on the role of bees trying to reach their hives unscathed. In doing so, they decode words; read controlled sentences comprising all the consonants and vowels; and build reading fluency. This pack also explores onset and rime in Got It? rhyming games.
This pack meets Common Core State Standards, and can be used time and time again by individual students or by students in small groups. The materials are perfect for extra literacy practice and for literacy centers. Tutors who follow the Orton-Gillingham approach to reading instruction may find these materials particularly useful.
Games for Beginner Readers (3) is the third in a series of three packs that introduce beginner readers to individual consonants and vowels. Look for the packs in the Green Ink store. The games in all three packs are interchangeable so that phonograms from one pack may be played on game boards from another. This adds versatility to the materials: words and controlled sentences from earlier packs may be reviewed in the games included in later packs. Also, some board games, such as Three Blind Mice and Read-y, Set, Go to School, may appeal to younger students, while older students may be more interested in On Your Mark… and Mountain Adventure Game.
