Do you need guided reading warm-up games that complement your spelling/phonics units? Phonics For Fun is a series of games that just might meet your needs! These quick guided reading games can be used as a quick reinforcement for phonics/spelling skills. They are designed for grades 2-3 and offer a variety of words to meet the needs of many of your learners. There are 28 games all together. Each game is saved as a separate file so you can easily find the game you want.
These games can be used with any reading/spelling series. They are not meant to exactly match a spelling list, but rather provide practice with the phonetic skill and extend student learning.
Included in each set is a game with two other activities which can be done as well. There is a teacher note card as well as the game itself. A direction card for the game is also included. The games are in color and in black and white masters. This way, games can be copied onto colored paper to save color ink.
These guided reading games work very well with the teacher present so the teacher can provide immediate reinforcement. The games work best with struggling and on target students. Most advanced readers do not need phonics instruction.
Laminate them for future use, put them in a baggie and label them to match the reading/spelling unit or story you in which you would use them.
Skills included: variant vowels, blends, closed and open syllables, compound words, digraphs, el and le words, r-controlled vowels, /ew/, hard and soft c and g, homophones, inflectional endings, long vowels, short vowels, oi and oy, ow and ou, silent letters, plurals, and prefixes.
This set now includes 30 practice sheets covering the same skills. These can be seen here: Phonics Worksheets for Third Grade
