Triple Blends Game

I have been a busy girl. I took three days off from school (what was I thinking?) to fly to Disneyland for the Tinkerbell Half Marathon. I'm pretty sure I would love to move to Cali. Whose with me?

The sunshine alone was worth the trip, but it's soooo muuuuch woooork to take off. I feel so behind now. And upon my return I received a new student. Let me just say,  nothing changes your classroom like an overstimulated screaming five year old with autism! He really is a sweet boy, and I know things will settle down when he acclimates to his. Somehow this week I managed to create a game for one of my first grade reading groups. We are learning to read words with triple consonant blends, and this group is finding it very tricky.  I uploaded it to google Docs to share with you. Hope you guys enjoy.
Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the download- printing it as I type. We were doing another activity that used this same font, and one of my students told me that the "s" was upside down- was observant that day...

Love this, but could you provide me with directions as how to play?

Pnelson, students take turn reading the word on the card. If they read it, they get to keep it. If they can't it goes back into the pile. There are also some cards that allow students to draw another card, take a card from a friend or lose a turn. Play as long as time permits. The one with the most cards when time is up wins.

Shar, I've had my students say that about the s also! They're so funny!

What a cute game. Makes me think about spring - and with the snow on the ground here, I'm really thinking about how nice warmer weather will be! Thanks for the freebie! Renee
