Do your students need some extra word work practice with their spelling, high-frequency, and story words? This word game may be just what they need!
This fun partner word game includes one game sheet for each of the following stories found in the 1st Grade Reading Street Common Core (2013) reading series included in Unit 4:
· Mama's Birthday Present
· A Trip to Washington, D.C.
· A Southern Ranch
· Peter's Chair
· Henry and Mudge and Mrs. Hopper's House
Materials Needed: 1 game sheet per pair, 1 paperclip, 2 different colored crayons (one crayon per player), and 1 pencil
Directions: Using a paperclip and pencil, Player 1 spins the letter and number spinners. Player 1 locates that coordinate on the grid and reads the word in that box. If read correctly, the player colors the box. If read incorrectly, the player loses a turn. (If the box has already been colored in, the player loses a turn.) Player 2 continues in the same manner. Players take turns until all of the boxes are filled in. The winner is the player who has the most boxes at the end of the game.
This game makes a great, no-fuss literacy center!
Thanks for looking!
