Quite some time ago, I started sharing four-in-a-row reading games. I had intended to quickly create and publish the sets for all the short vowel words families … and I got a little sidetracked.
That’s because creating and launching an eight-week course about teaching reading takes a good nine months. Thankfully, the first session went well (my colleague and I had 600 students!), and I’m now ready to create and share more freebies on the blog.
So … for all of you who have been patiently waiting – here are the short e four-in-a-row games!
If you’ve seen our other four-in-a-row games, you know that each one comes with a game for each word family. To play, take turns reading a word and covering or dotting with a Do-a-dot marker.
The first to get four in a row, wins!
Each word family game comes in a second version – this one with blends and digraphs included.
You’ll also find games like this one – which include multiple word families in a single game.
Perfect for differentiation!
And the last game is a review of all the short e word families.
