Phonics Check & Phase 3-5 Revision - Roll a word game and table of all words in screener 2011/16

(0)
A very handy and flexible game (played in pairs/groups) which can be played a few different ways: Option 1: Read it! Roll the dice, choose a word in the corresponding column & read it. If the child is correct they win the word & cover it or colour it. Option 2: Spell it! Roll the dice, choose a word in the corresponding column, read it, your partner covers it & then the child has a go at spelling it. If the child is correct they win the word & cover it or colour it. Option 3: Read it, Spell it! I used this for a mixed Y1 and Y2 pairing where Y1's had to read the words and Y2's had to spell the words. Also included is a table showing all words in the phonics screener since 2011 and a blank game board so you can chop and change words to suit your needs!
