Students will roll one die (dot cube) and move a marker around the game board landing on pictures that follow a particular phonics pattern. As students land, they will say the name of the picture and write the phonemes in the provided elkonin boxes. Example: Land on a picture of a bat, write AT. Land on a picture of a pan, write AN.
Students play a partner and continue rolling, landing, and writing until both students have full recording sheets. The student that landed on the targeted spelling pattern the most times is the winner! Full directions included with games.

These games can be projected and played whole group teacher vs. students which allows all students to record answers in elkonin boxes (included) together as they grow comfortable with the games.
Once students are comfortable and confident, these are perfect literacy centers, word work extensions, or even tutoring fun for students that need extra practice with volunteers!
The preview file is a freebie for you to try out! It is the SHORT A game board and recording sheet options!
