This game is perfect for literacy centers, and my students love it! It will provide your students an opportunity to practice reading short vowel, CVC words containing a short 'e.' Players take turns "tossing the ball to each other" by drawing cards and reading the word. If they get a "Monkey in the Middle" card, they must return all of their cards to the middle pile. It contains 36 game cards and includes both color and black and white versions. It is suitable for 2-6 players.
This can be used as a center in your classroom, for pull-out sessions for RTI or special education or to send home for extra review with a parent or tutor.
If you enjoy this game, please leave feedback and a rating. Also, feel free to check out additional versions of this game at my TPT store. The games are formatted similarly so you can mix and match decks for a mixed review. I will continue to add versions over time, so also consider following me on TPT.
