Thanks for checking this out!
There are 9 game boards included in this pack, featuring all short vowels and a_e, i_e, o_e, and u_e (long vowels). Each game board includes an 8-section spinner with 8 different rime “chunks” on them to correspond to the indicated vowel sound. There are 24 onsets on each board for you and your students’ reading pleasure, too!
Setup is a breeze! Print all pages on white cardstock. Laminate them for durability. Attach paperclip “arrows” to the spinners using a brass fastener and inserting it through the star on each spinner. Gather some dry erase markers and you’re ready to go!
I use this game during center time with my kindergartners. Students pick a game board to use individually. They spin the spinner, then write the “rime” spun on the first line (after the “onset” beginning sound) with a marker. Then, they read the word! If it’s a REAL word, they circle it; if it’s NONSENSE, they do nothing and spin again! Students continue to spin, write, and read until the entire board is full! At the end, they count how many circled REAL words they created. When finished, they erase and play again!
This game could also be played in partners using 2 different colored dry erase markers and work as a race to spin and read the most REAL words! Can you think of other ways to play?
