  • Putting with 3 chdn who have some SEN and are struggling with reading CVC words but can do if they are working together. So I can support the rest of class for a little while.
    I would only get the chdn to help each other read the word, rather than cut out all the word cards as some seem to be doing. You have to make it manageable for you too!!

  • My class loves this game. I do need an adult to supervise this though to ensure that the words are spelt correctly. Instead of placing the spelling words on the board, I just have the kids roll the dice and spell the picture they land on. Less messy, and still enjoyable :)

  • I am unsure about the effectiveness of the rules of play for this game.I feel that this will be quite a messy game to play. Cards can be easily moved when travelling across the game board especially by year1 children. Do you assume that an adult would set this up for a group? If not then the children don't need to self check after saying word if they already knew the word well enough to place the card. Seems to defeat the purpose of the self check. Perhaps the words should be printed on the game board and the children can look for the corresponding picture card if they have read the word correctly. Winner could be the person with the most picture cards at the end. Alternatively, it may be more challenging to land on a picture on the current game board and have to scan the word cards for the corresponding word.

Use this board game to help reinforce CVC words with your children. Cut out the images and place them over the right words, getting your children to go through the game and see if they can work out the correct word and sound from the picture!
