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
