This is a common core reading game for kindergarten and first grade students. It includes a blend game board, 20 blend picture cards (bl, br, cl, cr, dr, fl, fr, gl, gr, pl, pr, sc, sk, sl, sm, sn, sp, st, sw, tr), 40 game pieces, teacher and student directions, an "I Can" statement to post in the classroom, and the kindergarten common core standards it meets.
In "Hillbilly Jamboree! A Blend Activity,” students draw a picture card and place a counter on the game board with the blend that begins with the word. If a blend is already covered, students select a new card. The game ends when all the spaces have been covered on the game board. Students can play this game independently or in small groups at literacy stations, word work centers, and with your Daily Five instruction. It encourages students to produce blends, understand syllables and sounds, and use their decoding skills.
