Thanks for downloading this super fun FREEBIE! I use the games in this set during center time, and they work FABULOUSLY! Kids LOVE them. The games can also be used for interventions/RtI, homework, tutoring, enrichment, or morning work! Can you think of other ways, too?
Love these games but want to focus on other reading skills for primary students?

SEVEN 1- or 2-player (ideally) reading games broken up into the following beginning sound sets:
• Aa, Mm, Pp, Ss, Tt
• Bb, Ff, Ll, Nn, Oo
• Cc, Dd, Gg, Ii, Ww
• Kk, Rr, Uu, Vv, Zz
• Ee, Hh, Jj, Qq, Yy
• Aa, Bb, Cc, Ff, Ii, Ll, Mm, Nn, Oo, Pp, Ss, Tt, Ww
• Dd, Ee, Gg, Hh, Jj, Kk, Qq, Rr, Uu, Vv, Yy, Zz
Print the game boards on white cardstock or construction paper. Laminate for durability or place in plastic page protectors like I do (trust me—it’s WAY EASIER). Gather some game pawns of your choosing (i.e., cubes, counting bears, old game pieces, etc.), some dry-erase markers of various colors (1 color per player), and 1 die. You’re ready to play!
All games are played the same way, and all directions are included on each game board! Each game is played by a player rolling a die, moving that many spaces (starting on the board ANYWHERE s/he chooses), and saying the letter sound s/he lands on. Once the sound is made, s/he finds a picture in the middle of the board whose beginning sound MATCHES the sound and crosses it off with his/her dry-erase marker. Play moves to the next player. The game is over when a player makes 4 in a row! (You can easily change the rules to the winner is whomever covers the MOST spaces or even whomever crosses off the final picture. These games are also adaptable to players playing solo!) All of these games are tons of fun! I hope you love them as much as my students do! Have fun! ☺
