Product Description
This phonics-in-disguise activity is adaptable, according to your curriculum and the needs of your students in first grade.

The kids have so much fun playing educational game that they don't even know they are learning!

★Create dozens of different versions of Bingo
★With 45 different R-Controlled Word Cards
★3 different Bingo Mats
★R-Controlled Poster

In most bingo games, words are already printed on the mats, so students only have to read the words when they play.

But in this kit, students read and write, so learning is reinforced. Students practice both decoding (sounding out) and encoding (spelling) phonetic words and word parts. They may also pick up some words by sight along the way!

There are two main parts to the game:

1. Students create their own Bingo Mats by writing words in each square.
2. Students play the game by taking turns reading the randomly-drawn Word Cards, and marking the words on their individual mats.

This reading and spelling game provides wonderful opportunities to review:

-the terms letter, word, vowel, consonant
-the r-controlled vowel sounds
-blends and consonant digraphs

The words have been carefully chosen with attention to balancing vowels, consonants, and consonant combinations.

The duration of the game will vary between about 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the materials you use and the needs of your students.

Enjoy the game!
