These Roll, Read, and Write Word Game printables are designed to reinforce words that are taught in first grade. Although the words used in this packet follow the Harcourt Trophies 1st Grade Reading Series, these activity pages may be used in any primary grade classroom. This packet contains 34 word game pages, each containing 6 words that follow a specific spelling pattern, which is listed on top of each page for quick reference.
Play is easy. First, the student predicts a winner, guessing which word he/she will roll the most. Then, the student rolls a die, reads the word from that column, and writes the word neatly in that column. Play continues until a column is filled. The student fills in the winner on top. Was the prediction correct?
This game can be played individually, but partners are lots of fun! (My kiddos like to play with partners... friendly competition, of course!) I love to use this activity as a Literacy Center. The students are so actively engaged in the game, that there are fewer interruptions during instruction of guided reading groups.
Just a WARNING.... You may want to run a few extra copies off, because my students love to play this game several times during the week! They even ask to take some sheets home for homework!
This packet includes spelling, phonics, and handwriting practice all rolled up in one fun package! And.... it’s for one whole year!! Don’t miss out!
