Phonics fun racing board game. Year 1 EYFS Early reading au oi  ear ea & ar sounds Key Stage 1

Phonics fun racing board game. Year 1 EYFS Early reading au oi ear ea & ar sounds Key Stage 1

This resource includes 5 game boards and the sounds au, oi, ear /ur pronunciation of ear, ar and ea. There is a mixture of nonsense and real words on each board. For best results print A3! I have asked children to select their playing piece from a basket of cars and used a large foam die! just to add a twist and gimmick to it. I have used these with a class of 20 plus but found they are great for use in interventions and 1:2:1 teaching. Each board takes roughly 20 mins to play with 3 players. In the past I’ve held small competitions to see who won overall. Hope your class love this game! Thanks

Phonics screening check Fun racing game nonsense words  Year 1 Australian 4 players and 2

Phonics screening check Fun racing game nonsense words Year 1 Australian 4 players and 2

This game was loved by my mixed R/1 class so much that I created a 4 player A3 sheet version. It promotes reading and sharing. Included is a 2 player and 4 player version. This download includes 5 PDF documents with 4 game boards (20 boards in all). Each split digraph a_e , e_e, i_e , o_e and u_e have been split into three levels of difficulty and the middle ability has a copy with the sounds highlighted to further differentiate. Boards contain a mixture of nonsense/alien words and real. The pupils simply roll die and then move car and say word they land on. They don’t move if they can’ read the nonsense word. The other pupils really enjoy being the ref and check their friends learning. To make it a longer game use a die just up to 3. This can be used as a whole class activity / starter or with 1:1/group interventions. You could simply use this to time your children on how fast they can read the words. To extend game just overlap the game boards and make the track longer. Children could play best out of three or you could use the game boards to set out a mini competition/tournament around the classroom. It’s also great when doing transport as a theme and to check and stretch learning. I’ve included the word documents so that you can edit and create your own words. Great revision activity for the new Year 1 phonics screening check. No real preparation needed. Simply print and use. You only need toy cars or a playing piece and a die. I really hope you and your class enjoy this as much as my class do. Please leave feedback if possible :) Thanks

Fun Phonics who's who/ guess who game or Bingo! KS1 EYFS yr1 yr2 Phonics screening check revison

Fun Phonics who's who/ guess who game or Bingo! KS1 EYFS yr1 yr2 Phonics screening check revison

This game is great for promoting vocabulary/terminology in my mixed R/1 class. This download includes 10 PDF documents with 4 pages (40 game boards in all). Each game board covers a range of sounds from phase 2-5 and set 2/3 RWI. This game is a great revision activity that is fun and allows children to show what they know as well as collaborate/play with other children. This can be used as a whole class activity / starter or with 1:1/group interventions. Great revision activity for the upcoming phonics screening test. No real preparation needed. Simply print, cut and use. To play who’s who the children need to pick a word and then ask other players questions to eliminate possible words (aliens). Alternatively you can laminate boards and just ask children to choose a alien (word) and ask children to sit in a group to play. Also I have used these as bingo boards for small groups (up to 4 children). I really hope you and your class enjoy this as much as my class do. Please leave feedback if possible :) Thanks

Phonics Screening Check FUN racing game Year 1 KS1 eyfs Split digraphs. Real/Nonsense words

This game is loved by my mixed R/1 class. This download includes 5 PDF documents with 4 pages (20 boards in all) and a smartboard version of all hard copies for interactive whiteboard. Each split digraph a_e , e_e, i_e , o_e and u_e have been split into three levels of difficulty and the middle ability has a copy with the sounds highlighted to further differentiate. The pupils simply roll die and then move car and say word they land on. These sounds are ideal to cover if you are working on phase 5 or set 3 RWI phoncis schemes. This can be used as a whole class activity / starter or with 1:1/group interventions. The interactive Smartboard game uses a die that only goes up to 3. This makes it a snappy but not too long a game. Children could play best out of three or you could use the game boards to set out a mini competition/tournament around the classroom. It’s also great wen doing transport as a theme and to check and stretch learning. I’ve included the word documents so that you can edit and create your own words. Great revision activity for the upcoming phonics screening. No real preparation needed. Simply print and use. You only need toy cars or a playing piece and a die.
