Practice reading and math at the same time!
This collection of 56 word families is perfect for year-long study of word families. They are organized into rows and distributed through 40 game boards (4-6 different families for each page)
Click the preview for an example of the page layout. All pages are the same for continuity.
Use them in your small groups or independent literacy centers each week.
Laminate the color copies for use year after year.
There is at least one row of words for the following word families:
42. ow (like cow)
43. ow (like tow)
*Note: Several word families have several lines of practice and are repeated through the set. If you don't count for letter combinations with different sounds, the total word family count is 56, so I have listed that number on the cover.
Each game page uses a different animal and number in the corner to help you organize.
Note: This set is part of a larger bundle in which each Roll and Read set is significantly reduced in price. Click below to see the details if you are considering the other sets:

This is a staple activity in my literacy centers all year long! It also works in my math centers because of the various addition skills it practices, and I toss a bunch in my sub tub as well. It's great as "homework" for students because of the game format - it's homework that everyone can have fun with!
Both color and black and white versions are included!
The math skills also progress in order of difficulty through the year as follows:
-counting on dice
-numeral matching the dice dots
-double the dice roll
-doubles plus 1
-doubles plus 2
-doubles minus 1
-triple the number rolled
These can be used each week in independent or partnered literacy centers to last the whole year, or they can also be used simultaneously to differentiate your instruction for different students.
*Add this to your Sub Tub for a quick activity with no prep.
*Add this to your early finishers tub.
*Use this during small group lessons to focus on beginning sounds and letter patterns.
*Cut up the strips for a “Grab and Read” game.
*Use as a whole class or partner game: Teacher calls out a word, students find and circle the word.
