Are you a new teacher and looking to set up your literacy centers? Or maybe your word work stations need a little revamping?

In this video, learn three tips that will help you establish meaningful word work routines and maximize your teaching time. Word work is the foundation for everything that is to come later. I have never heard a student say they didn't like to play games, or use different tactile methods to learn phonics patterns and sight words. These tips can help to set up, or fine tune your word work centers.

Included are FIVE games your student can play in any subject. Use these cards to review sight words, vocabulary, phonics based (decodeable) words, math facts....the list goes on.

Game directions are included for each game.

Games included:
→ BAM!
→ ZAP!
→ Don't Feed the Raccoon
→ Baseball
→ Game Board
→ Also included is a sample of final -ck phonics game cards.
