I created this engaging, pirate-themed board game just for budding readers. It comes with 2 sets of cards: CVC words (all 5 short vowel sounds are represented) and beginning sight word sentences like “I see a cat.” There are 20 cards in each set. One page of EDITABLE cards is also included! This game also has a 2-page game board, 2 full-color recording sheets (to laminate for classroom use), 2 blackline recording sheets, 1 sheet of directions, and 2 choices of matching game pieces. Ink-saving options are included! Your little ones will definitely want to practice reading now!
This game addresses the following Common Core Standards for kindergarten language arts:
RF.K.1b Recognize that spoken words are represented in written language by specific sequences of letters.
RF.K.2d Isolate and pronounce the initial, medial vowel, and final sounds (phonemes) in three-phoneme (consonant-vowel-consonant, or CVC) words.
RF.K.3 (a,b,c, & d) Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
RF.K.4 Read emergent-reader texts with purpose and understanding.
L.K.1a Print many upper- and lowercase letters.
