This is a fun monkey themed game where students will use their knowledge of letter sounds and decoding skills to read nonsense words. Nonsense words are a great way for students to practice with because it forces them to apply their phonics skills to read words they have never seen before.
In this game students will take turns drawing a stick or card. Each has either a nonsense word on it that students must read, or a fun phrase:
- Lost your banana, lose a turn
- Swing Again! Take Another Turn!
- Steal a banana from a friend!
Included are labels designed to be printed on Avery 5160 labels or similarly sized labels (1 x 2.5 in.). These can then be stuck onto jumbo craft sticks. They can also be printed onto cardstock, laminated and cut apart.
I hope your students enjoy this fun phonics game as much as my students do!
