Fun Phonics Games

Cootie catchers (or chatterboxes/fortune tellers) are a fun way of combining a popular children’s game with some practice in reading and spelling words that have a particular phonics focus. | topnotchteaching.comPhonics games are a fun and engaging way to help your students revise and practice words during phonics/spelling time. I’ve been working hard to create and add to a couple of phonics games that I already have. My phonics board games – spin, read, write and cootie catchers are very popular with my students, so I’ve added some new sets to include even more sounds.

Spin, Read, Write Games

There are now 3 sets of these fun board games. Best of all, they’re super easy to play and require minimal work to set up. Students use the game board, paper clip, pencil and 2 different colored pens/markers to play. Each student takes a turn to spin a word, read the word and then write it on the grid. The first student to get 4 words in a row is the winner. The boards can be laminated and used in centers as well. Below are the sets available and the sound focus for each set.

Set A includes:phonics games

Sound /ae/, Spellings: ay, ea, a-e, ai, ai, eigh, ei
Sound /ee/, Spellings: e, ea, y, ee, ey, ie
Sound /oe/, Spellings: o, oa, ow, o-e, oe
Sound /er/, Spellings: er, ir, or, ur, ear
Sound /e/, Spellings: e, ea, ai

Phonics Cootie Catchers

Who doesn’t love this classic game? I’ve taken the classic children’s game: cootie catchers (also called chatterboxes and fortune tellers) and combined them with some practice in reading and spelling words that have a particular phonics focus. My kids have been enjoying using them as a way for us to review words and sounds that we’ve been working on in the past.

There are two sets available for 15 different sounds. The cootie catchers follow the same phonic progression as the Spin, Read, Write games, so work well together.
