I created this Valentine’s game to assist my students with reading automaticity and fluency. I used words with blends, diagraphs, vowel combinations, phonograms and word endings covered in the first grade Pearson reading series. The Pearson series moves quickly and this game gives my students a review of covered content. I’ve put these words on colorful cards and included two game boards. I’ve also included a spelling recording sheet to use with fluent readers who need spelling practice.
216 word cards
