If you are having to work with RTI students in a bilingual or Dual language classroom and must use research based materials, then this game is just what you need. This game is similar to the Florida Center based game in English; however, I designed it as a hexagon. The objective is the same but its in the student's native language, Spanish.
K-1 Student Center Activities: Phonics Letter sound hexagon game
Objective: The student will match initial sounds using either letter cards or picture cards or a combination of both. (its up to the teacher)
cards (letters and pictures)
Game pieces (e.g., counters not included)
Students match beginning sounds/letters or words to letters while playing the hexagon game. (You should probably laminate them for durability)
1. Place beginning sound/picture cards face down in a stack. Provide each student with a different hexagon and game pieces.
2. Taking turns, students select the top card from the stack, name the letter/ picture and say its beginning sound (e.g., “pala, or /p/”).
3. Look for letter on the hexagon that corresponds to beginning sound (i.e., “l”).
4. If letter is found, place game piece on that spot and place picture card in your square pile on your mat. If no letter is found which matches, place picture card at the bottom of the stack.
5. Continue until all matches are made and there is a winner.
