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
