What do I get?
This packet includes 5 Spin&Bump games focusing on different spellings of long vowels. See below for the spellings that are included for each vowel.
Each game comes in black and white (printer friendly!) or colored (for printing&laminating to be used over and over).
The 5 games included are:
Long a: a_e (magic e), ai, ay
Long e: e_e, ee, ea, ey
Long i: i_e, igh, ie
Long o: o_e, oa, oe, ow
Long u: u_e, ue, ui, ew (Long u is a difficult sound as it can say its name or the /oo/ sound as well)
These are GREAT for literacy centers, homework practice, and can even be used independently (just give the child a certain number of chips and they continue play until they run out).
How do I Play?
Each player needs a different colored chip (counters, cubes, etc. work great!) The first player spins the spinner (you just need a paperclip and a pencil-simple!) and reads the phonics skill they land on. Then they find a word with that pattern, read it, and place a chip on that spot. Repeat with the second player.
If a player rolls the same skill and chooses to read a word that is already covered with another player’s chip, he/she can BUMP the other player’s chip off!
BUT if you roll the same skill twice and read the same word twice, you can place another of your own chips on it and LOCK the spot so no one can bump you off!
Play can continue until all spots are frozen or until one player uses all of his/her chips.
Enjoy and please leave feedback!
