First Grade No-Prep Phonics Games Bundle
Help your students master 1st grade phonics skills with these no-prep phonics games! These hands-on activities are great for centers or independent work. There are options for independent and partner/small group play!
These activities will help you…
- Reinforce your whole group phonics instruction with hands-on practice
- Teach students to work independently with simple, first grade-friendly materials
- Save tons of prep time (no cutting!!)
- Get students excited about practicing essential skills!
This resource includes over 160 activities (each activity is provided in color and black-and-white).
Included are games for:
- CVC words (23)
- digraphs (23)
- consonant blends (20)
- double final consonants (14)
- glued sounds (21)
- contractions (8)
- r-controlled vowels (19)
- CVCe words (14)
- vowel teams (22)
These activities require NO cutting, folding, or any other kind of prep! Simply print and use these sheets. You can place them inside page protectors or laminate them for easy re-use, too. Students will need basic manipulatives (dice and counters) to play.
To make it easier for your first graders to remember the directions, students complete the same type of activity with multiple phonics patterns! (The themes are varied so that the games “feel” new, even when students already know how to play.) Additionally, there are visual reminders to ensure that students remember what to do.
If you want to differentiate, these games make it as easy as “click and print.” You can select different games for different groups of students. This is incredibly helpful if you have students at a wide range of ability levels!
These activities can supplement any phonics program or work as stand-alone activities for literacy centers or Daily 5.
