Your students (especially your boys) love Minecraft. Capitalize on that popularity with this fun literacy game.
ELEVEN different crafting boards and all 220 Dolch sight words plus two blank pages to add your own.
Setup Directions: Print a crafting board for each player. Print and cut out both pages of sight words (or letters). Print and cut out crafting ingredients. Please note that some recipes require two pages of ingredients. For every addition player beyond two, print and extra set of sight words (or letters) and ingredients.
Playing Directions: Each player gets the same crafting board. A player draws a card from the word (or letter) pile. If the player can say the word (or letter), s/he may draw from the ingredient pile. First person to craft the object wins.
The first four pages focus on letter identification—lower case, capital, mixed, and both. The remaining board games utilizes the Dolch sight word list. The Dolch sight word list is 220 of the most frequently used words. The first 25 words are typically for Kindergarten. The next 100 are usually for first graders. The remaining 100 are for second graders. Many of these words cannot be sounded out and therefore must be memorized. In addition, these are words that students must be able to read and write quickly.
This in class or at home game supports classroom learning by practicing these high frequency sight words.
