Word Games for Literacy Centers

My students need fun and engaging phonics and rhyming match and sort games for our literacy centers.

My Students

"Teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning." As I enter my 20th year of teaching, I continue to follow this mantra in my classroom. I teach 28 wonderful students who come from poverty. My students are from varying ethnic backgrounds. Most of them come from homes that are struggling financially.

My students are extremely motivated, and they are genuinely respectful to each other.

They are lovers of learning, and I am truly grateful to be their teacher this year. They come to school with smiles on their faces, and they are eager to learn. We need materials to use in our literacy centers.

My Project

First grade is such an important and exciting year in a child's life. It is the year that they will learn to read! These materials will help my first graders become independent readers. We will use these materials at our literacy centers. Everyday my students do literacy centers. The students rotate to different stations and work on their word skills, writing skills, independent reading, and comprehension skills. These centers are designed to engage my students in their learning, and at the same time allow them to work independently and have fun.

We need fun and engaging phonics and rhyming match and sort games for our literacy centers.

These literacy materials will reinforce reading skills that are needed for my students to become independent readers. The match and sort games will help my students learn in a fun way about phonics skills needed to become readers.
