We do not have classroom games just for fun though it might appear that way on the surface. The easiest way to make children learn is through hands-on games and activities.
In this post, I will be sharing a game for l blends words. If you are looking for free consonant blend worksheets, check this space.
This addictive chain reaction card game, “I have, who has.” is for bl cl fl gl pl sl blends words.
I have used only short vowel words for this blends words game. ‘sh’, ‘ch’, ‘th’ digraph words have been included. To first read blend words, check this free worksheet pack for reading blend words.
How to play?
Have the children sit in a circle. The child with the start card goes first. The children stand and read their card. And a chain reaction ensues. The child with the correct answer stands up and reads their card. The game continues until ‘The end’ card is read. To make it more challenging, time the children and have them try to break their own record.
There are 4 sheets with 9 cards printed on each sheet. That makes it 36 cards in all. That makes it more than 70 ‘bl cl fl gl pl sl words’ for practice.
You will need to print these sheets and cut them into cards. Print these clip cards on card stock and laminate them for durability. If card stock is not possible, try 100 GSM A4 sheets like these.
I am always on the lookout for ways to make teaching more fun and interesting. When I came across ‘I have, who has?’ game four years back, I knew I had to design one for my class.
Revision can be boring but with the ‘I Have, Who Has?’ game, it’s a breeze. These games are such a fun way for children to practice their reading skills and consolidate knowledge.
We usually play this game on Mondays when the children are feeling lazy after the weekend. The children are all awake and energetic after this game and then also try and write a few words for the sound that has been covered.
If you are looking for this game in any other sound, do let me know by sharing it in the comments section. I will be happy to share it.
This pack is a subscriber freebie.
