This is a great activity for beginning readers. It supplies valuable practice for students using beginning reading skills, such as cvc and cvce words, vowel pairs, blend, digraphs, and sight words. Download the activity and make copies for the students. They can work independently or at a center. If you would like, you can also print them in color on card stock, laminate, and use a water-based or wipe-off pen for students to use and reuse. There are six to choose from, just right for small group. The students roll the die, read the word, and write it. They can see which word wins by filling that row first. Makes a great center!
