This is the Free version of the game. If you need or want to change and adapt it to suit your class, students and school and support the website please consider the dollar version!! It is here in the store :)
This is an awesome self directed learning activity. Just split your class into groups of 2-4 and give them a counter and a dice. They will play this game for ages and you can monitor their progress as they are all engaged in the lesson.
This version has three games, I have more though, it is CVC and CCVC words, onset and rime and blends. Great for young learners. It took SOOOOO long to make 😛
It is based on the popular Monopoly game but I have adapted and remade it for phonics. I love playing this with my students.
Give each player a counter and put a dice on each board
Ask them to read, or go through the rules on the board. You might have to explain what each corner means.
Player throws and moves their counter to the box and then does the task or reads the word. If they do It correctly they can put their points on the score sheet.
First to 100 ( or what ever you say wins.)
Can have up to four people play.
I have fully editable versions but they are 2 USD as it took me AGES to make this 😛
Hope you enjoy it its worked great in my ESL classroom.
This is the Free Version version of the Animopoly game, Which is ready to play. If you would liek to support the website the editable version is also in the store for the princely sum of 1 Dollar!
As teachers we all love teaching students about animals, there is something that just catches the imagination about this topic. This resource came after making another Monopoly type game for phonics and CVC words, and some other language elements, and i though the idea could be used for other vocabulary elements, so i have started with animals. The download is at the bottom of this page. The name came out of my head, so if you have any better ideas please let me know!!
However i do have the PowerPoint versions of these as well. These will cost $1 USD when i put them up. Just because it took such a long time to make! If you are in desperate need of the editable one you can email me on the link below, or sign up as I do giveaways of the editable versions of the big resources for subscribers as well.
These games are great for both student and teachers, as the students are fully engaged and it frees up the teacher to focus on students needs as they are working ( or in their mind playing) It also turns the lesson into student centered instead of teacher centred and this results on more students on task.
Did i mention it is great to see them having fun as well 😉 IF you want more like this please sign up, and if you watch the video then subscribe as well!!
Free Version of our most popular download over 20,000 so far!
I love doing this activity, it can be totally self directed by the students and they really practice reading and comprehension skills from this. It is a whole class activity that can be done in groups, pairs or individual. I much prefer giving it as an individual task so students have their own work to present and take home.
I have a video guide for you, which as this can be a little confusing i suggest you at least skip through it, but i will put the main details below as well.
