Connect 4 Game with Words in the short a pattern. This flipchart has the following words: am, at, sat, man, dad, mat, sad, jam, cat, hat, had, glad, ham, pan, fat, bat, bam, pad, bad, flat (words do repeat)
I found this flipchart on Promethean Planet to use with spelling words. I adjusted it so that I could use it with word patterns.
I split the students up into two teams (yellow and red). I have an actual Connect 4 Game and demonstrate that the pieces fall all the way to the bottom since the Promethean Board cannot do that. I also explain that in order to connect 4 the same color must be touching vertical, horizontal, or diagonal.
You can have the students identify the word, use the word in the sentence, give the definition,and more!
