Lucky Clover

Not many people can say that they have a strong team.  I am so lucky I get to work with three AMAZING teachers!  Miss Ferguson is full of creative ideas and resources.  You walk into her room and you instantly can tell she was born to teach first grade.  At the beginning of the year, Miss Ferguson shared with us a nonsense word fluency game she had used to help her students master basic phonics skills.  She has created a new game for St. Patrick's Day called "Lucky Clover."  Click on the bear to download the game.

How to play:  Put all the clovers in a bag.  Players take turns pulling a clover out.  If the player reads the card, he/she keeps the card.  If not, they put it back in.  If the player pulls a "Lucky Clover," then he/she gets two turns.  The game is over when all the cards are used.

This is a fun game to help reinforce blending and phonics sounds.  It is going into my game station this week.
