Game three using words from step 1 in the Blend Phonics Book. This is the last game for the short vowel words from step one in the blend phonics book. Our first two games can be found here and here. To play each player rolls the dice and whatever vowel is rolled the player then takes a word from that stack and if they can read it correctly they get to keep the word. Once each player earned about 15 cards each, we ended the game by reading the remaining cards in each stack. If “a” was rolled then the player would read all the words remaining in the stack with “a” vowels in it.
Then the boys put their cards into the short vowel lap books (see post up the ladder), which are now completed. Yeah!!! On to step 2….consonants and diagraphs!!
