This game can be used to reinforce phonemic awareness - letter names and sounds. The game is played using two small toys (I use counting bears) and a die. Students take turns rolling the die and moving their bear across the board. To enrich the activity, you may have students record all of the letters that they land on. To differentiate, you can use a die with numerals rather than dots to reinforce numeral recognition. I recommend using a die that only goes up to three so that the game lasts longer and students land on more words for additional practice.
