I love teaching these blends because the kids can suddenly read/write so many more words once introduced and practiced. These games are a perfect way to practice reading R Blend words with br, cr, dr, fr, gr, pr, and tr.
Four games are included in color and black & white:
1. Blenderize: 4 in a Row: Pick a picture. ANY picture. Say name and the blend it starts with. If correct, cover. If not, opponent covers spot. Winner Winner Chicken Dinner? First to get 4 in a row.
2. Spin & Win (Game board divided into 2 sides) Player 1 goes first. Spin. Find a picture that starts with the same sound on your board. Cover. Player 2 goes next. Land on same blend 2 times in a row? LOSE A TURN! No more pictures with your sound? Skip turn. Winner? First to cover board!
3. Blender Bingo: NOTE: only 1 Bingo card in packet because it is a partner game. NOT a whole-class activity.) Decide if Bingo will be horizontal, vertical, diagonal or covering whole board. Player spins and lands on a blend. BOTH players look for word (no pictures on board) with matching blend on own board and cover. Winner is one who covers agreed upon Bingo pattern.
4. Dino Blends: Pick dino/side. (Board divided into 2) Both players roll two dice at same time. Add. Highest number gets to put a chip on own print (any) IF player can say blend sound and identify a word that begins with the blend. Roll same sum as opponent? Both roll again. Someone rolls doubles? You get to remove one of your opponent’s chips and both will roll again. Winner is first to cover all prints.
Also included is a letter home to parents that you can attach to the b&w versions for home play and a simple recording sheet letting parents know child played a game in school and it encourages parents to ask about it.
This is going to be a part of a larger bundle that will be available soon.
