How do I use this resource?
Using the word cards, students play two different kinds of games: follow-the-path games (four different game boards), and bump games (three different game boards). Both games are simple to teach and fun to play! You can use any of the games with any of the word cards, so it's easy to differentiate the practice simply by choosing the word cards for the phonics skill(s) you want your students to practice.
Vary the practice by switching games or game boards--no need to teach a whole new game! Easy prep for you, maximum fun and engagement for your students! Perfect for partners, small groups, or centers!
