This is an R-controlled Vowel game that can be played whole group or small group. The focus is words with ar. There are some digraph and blend words included. Students will love to practice reading with these games!
Grab the R-Controlled Printables here too:
Card Game: Put the cards in a pile. Students take turns picking a card and reading the word. If they get a special card, they follow the directions on the special card.
Can you find the parrot?: Put some of the word cards in a pocket chart or lay them out on the table. Without the students seeing, “hide” one of the parrot cards behind one of the word cards. Students take turns reading one word card. After they read the word card, correctly they can look behind the card to see if they found the parrot. First one to find the parrot wins!
Read and Write Around the Room: Hang 20 of the cards around the room. Have the students find the word, read the word, and then write the word on the recording sheet. Great for early finisher! Keep them up for the whole week!
After the games are modeled students will love to play it at centers and even indoor recess!
