Differentiate the Game

This game is great for sounding out CVC words. There are also many ways that you can differentiate for your students.

  • Focus on beginning sounds instead of the entire word. You can have your students recall the letter that the word begins with rather than spell the whole word.
  • Focus on end sounds. Have students recall the letter that the word ends with rather than spell the whole word.
  • Only use one short vowel sound in the game. For example: only include words that have a medial “a” or “e”.

Setting up the Game

Print and laminate Pages 3-10. I strongly recommend using card stock for the playing cards, so that students will not be able to see through them. I love to print on the white side of one-sided scrapbook paper as this makes the cards opaque and attractive.

For 2-6 players

How to Play the Game

-Shuffle word cards and place them upside down on the card box of the playing board.

-Choose the first player.

-Player 1 places their marker on the owl start position. The player to the left of Player 1 draws a card from the pile and without showing it to Player 1, reads the word aloud. Player 1 must spell the word either aloud or by writing it out.

-If Player 1 spells the word correctly on the first try, he/she spins the spinner and moves ahead the number of spaces indicated. The game continues to the next player with the player to his/her left reading the word for the player to spell.

-If a player does not spell the word correctly on the first try, they remain on the same leaf without spinning the spinner. The game continues to the next player.

-The first person to reach the owl’s branch wins!
