I designed this railroad-themed board game to add some beginning reading fun to my language arts center! With it, students can enjoy practicing their letter sounds and/or reading CVC words. This game comes with a two-page game board, directions, 2 sets of cards (letters and 30 CVC words), matching game pieces, blank cards, and a letter sound example page. Also included are 2 recording pages for each set of cards (4 total): One of each in color (to laminate) and black & white.
