Do you need guided reading warm-up games that complement your spelling/phonics units? Phonics For Fun is a series of games that just might meet your needs! These quick guided reading games can be used as a quick reinforcement for phonics/spelling skills. They are designed for grades 2-3 and offer a variety of words to meet the needs of many of your learners. These two free games focus on short vowels. By second and third grade, short vowels are not studied in isolation like they were in kindergarten and first. That is why there is one game with two vowels and one game with three short vowels.
These games can be used with any reading/spelling series. They are not meant to exactly match a spelling list, but rather provide practice with the phonetic skill and extend student learning.
Included in each set is a game with two other activities which can be done as well. There is a teacher note card as well as the game itself. A direction card for the game is also included. The games are in color and in black and white masters. This way, games can be copied onto colored paper to save color ink.
These guided reading games work very well with the teacher present so the teacher can provide immediate reinforcement. The games work best with struggling and on target students. Most advanced readers do not need phonics instruction.
Laminate them for future use, put them in a baggie and label them to match the reading/spelling unit or story you in which you would use them.
