This file contains 6 monkey bed game boards and over 100 monkey picture cards with pictures of words that have 2 phonemes, 3 phonemes, and 4 phonemes. Directions: Each player selects a bed game board. Place stack of monkey picture cards face down in the middle of the group. First player selects a card from the top of the stack, names the picture and counts each phoneme in the word. Then place the monkey card on the bed that displays the number of sounds. The objective of the game is to get five monkeys on each bed. If a player selects a card but already has 5 monkeys on that bed then the player must put the card back at the bottom of the stack. The turn goes to the next player. The first player to get 5 monkeys on each of their beds wins the game! Great addition to your Literacy Workstation or Reading Center. A fun way for teachers to work in small groups with struggling readers. Brought to you by Mrs. Horvath's Kinder.
