Yr 1 Reading Game - Sorting items for Mr Mix-Up

Yr 1 Reading Game - Sorting items for Mr Mix-Up

Phonics and reading support is offered in this enjoyable game. Children have to read or sound out the listed words to sort Mr Mix-Up’s house and garden items for him. Each identified item can be linked (by line or arrow) to either house or garden, as appropriate. The list contains 1- and 2-syllable words of varying difficulty, but the fun of the game will spur on any strugglers. Younger and older children will also it, older ones perhaps being inspired to create their own versions. Colouring opportunities too.

Bee Phonics Fun Phonics Game

Bee Phonics Fun Phonics Game

Bee Phonics is a great tool to help students master reading. It contains eight variants of a phonics board. Four of the variants contain writing lines. First, students say each sound of a word very slowly and then they read the whole word quickly. Once they’ve done it, they get a nectar point. They need to collect at least 9 nectar points to win. I’ve created a couple of versions of the nectar points and the boards where students place their points. The file also includes phonics tiles with blends, digraphs, trigraphs and other letter combinations. This means that you can create lots of different words using them.

Reading/Phonics Game - KS1

Reading/Phonics Game - KS1

Which words fit the topic? that’s the simple challenge here. Children have to read a selection of words to work out which apply to the given category (e.g. colours) and which ones don’t. There are 4 of these challenges, spread down the page, with colour variation for clarity and added fun. Able readers can complete these independently, linking or ticking relevant words with a pencil; less confident readers will need support (either one-to-one or group). Some words may be instantly recognisable, such as ‘red’ or ‘hot’, but others will need to be sounded out. Ideal for phonics learning and reading practice.
