It’s another set of no-prep reading games! This time we focus on short a and a-e words.
My Five is really getting the hang of silent e! I created our last game for a-e words. It’s one of our favorites – Four in a Row.
Why we love Four in a Row reading games
- They’re quick.
- They’re fun.
- They pack in a lot of learning.
How to play
- Print a game board. Grab counters or Do-a-Dot markers (our favorite!).
- Take turns reading a word. Cover or dot it if you read it correctly.
- The first to get four in a row, wins!
You’ll find four games in the download. The first version (pictured) has just CVCe words: bake, came, cave, face, etc. It’s the easiest game.
The second game includes blends or digraphs at the beginning of each word. You’ll find words like brake, flake, crane, skate, chase, etc.
(P.S. You’ll notice we each had four in a row a few times! We just decided to have fun reading and dotting all the words, whether or not we had four in a row.)
The third game is tougher because it contrasts short a and a-e words. You’ll find bat, mad, and wag along with vane, fake, and gave.
The fourth game (not pictured) has the same concept, except it includes words with beginning blends and digraphs.
Have fun with these freebies!
