One of the word work games my kids enjoy playing is roll and cover. It is a lot like Bingo. I teach my students three ways to play: 1-player, 2-player, and small group. In the game, a student rolls a die. There is a chart at the top of the page that tells the student what each number means. The student must look for, correctly read, and cover the word that follows the rule. If there aren’t any words available, the student loses that turn. Play continues until a student has covered four in a row.
I have created five different versions for my students to play:
Short Vowel (cvc)
Long Vowel (cvce)
Here is a pic of two of my students playing the game:
Sometimes I laminate, sometimes I don’t, but lately sheet protectors are my new best friend. I print the gameboards on cardstock paper. Then I insert them into sheet protectors. There are two gameboards inside each sheet protector so the students always have two games to choose from. As for cubes, I make my students keep them organized by color in stacks of five in our math manipulatives bin (yes, my OCD is shining brightly). By using this organizational trick, students can quickly grab the cubes they need to play the games.
Do you want more information on my roll and cover gameboards? Here are some pics of the product. You can click on the images below to be taken to the TpT page for more information.
Practicing addition is a lot more fun if kids get to go shopping, right?!? 🛒 And, this pack is FREE, so it really doesn’t cost you anything but the time to print and cut. 🖨 ✂️ This Snowman Supplies pack is a great way for students to add four 2-digit numbers.
Look at this great book sharing idea for Valentine's Day! It's called Blind Date with a Book. Students can wrap up a good book and write a description on the outside. Then others can choose a new book based on the description!A BLIND DATE WITH A BOOK! 😍 Wrap the books and write a description on each of them- have the kiddos read the descriptions and pick a book for a blind reading date!
