This board game provides students with a fun way to practice their reading skills. I love to use reading games in my classroom! They are a great way to encourage sight word recognition and fluency.
This game includes:
*2-page game board with full color as well as reduced color options to save on ink!
*3 sets of game cards for 3 levels of play: sight words, sight word sentences, and sentences with long vowels, blends and digraphs
*1 EDITABLE page of cards so you can include your own!
*4 foldable, 3D game pieces
*2 sets of recording sheets with color and line versions (a total of 4 pages)
*Directions to send home, if needed
*3 backgrounds to copy onto the backs of game cards
