Grab our free no-prep games for reading short e words!
Today I’m sharing a set of games that you can use to help your learners read short e words. The great thing is that they come in six different levels – perfect for differentiation!
Simply print the game of your choice and give it to a pair of students. They can take turns rolling the die and reading the corresponding column. The above image shows the simplest version.
Game 2 is slightly more challenging. Like game one, it has rhyming short e words in each column. But it requires students to read a few more words on each turn.
This one is for your speed readers – it has nine words per column.
If you have readers who are ready to read words with blends and digraphs, Game 4 is for them.
Game 5 adds CVC words to the words with blends and digraphs.
The last two games look simple at first glance, but they include a mix of short e words – no rhyming words here! Your students really have to attend to all the parts of the words.
Suggestions for using these games
- Use them in a tutoring or homeschool setting by taking turns with your learner.
- Pass them out, put students in pairs, and use them as a quick review at the end of a whole class phonics lesson.
- Put them at a fluency center so students can work in pairs to get stronger at reading with automaticity.
