    Preparing the Games Print the games and cards onto stock card and cut the cards into separate pieces.

    The game boards, cards and instructions can be laminated to make them more durable if you choose.

    Store the cards and instructions in a plastic bag, paper bag or envelope.

    When a game has cards, each card has a picture on it to help identify which game the piece belongs to if a piece is

    separated from its set of cards.

    Hints for Using Games

    Teachers

    Selecting the games Games can be used to reinforce the skills that are being taught in the classroom, e.g. when studying prefixes use

    Prefix Racing Track.

    Students can also be involved in selecting which games they would like to play. This will create a sense of ownership

    of the games.

    These games are an ideal way to cater for different ability levels in your classroom. Students who are struggling may

    be given easier games to practice basic skills. More advanced games can be used to extend brighter students.

    Preparing the games These games can be printed and prepared in the size that they are shown. This makes an ideal size for small groups

    to use.

    The games can also be printed and then enlarged on a photocopier. This makes an ideal game for the whole class to

    play. The game board and cards can be displayed on a board. Students can be divided into two teams or four teams and

    each team can send one player at a time to the front of the room to have a turn. OR The class can sit in a circle and sit in

    teams. The cards can then be placed in the center of the circle and played with one person from each team going into the

    center to have a turn.

    Laminating the games will make them more durable.

    Games can be stored in plastic bags, paper bags or envelopes. Label each game with the name of the game.

    Children can also be involved in preparing the games. Students can print the games, cut out cards and decorate the

    bags or envelopes. This will lighten the teachers work load and give students a sense of ownership of the games. The

    students will take pride in the fact they made the games. At the same time it is also giving the students responsibility.

    Making Your Own Games Many of the games provide a blank template so that you can create your own games to target the areas that you want.

    If you require a game that is easier or more advanced than those provided, just print the template/s and add your own

    words or letters as required.

    Children can also be involved in creating the games by suggesting words to be used and completing the templates

    with the words or letters.

    Playing the games These games are suitable for a variety of classroom uses.

    Whole class games can be made by enlarging the games on a photocopier. The class can be divided into teams and

    one player at a time can come to the front for a turn. Students can also be seated in a circle and sit with their teams. The

    cards can be placed in the center of the circle.

    The games can also be played in the size that they are printed. These games can be part of a language activity center

    or an activity for a language rotation.

    These games are also an ideal activity for students who finish work early. Students who finish work early then choose

    a game and play quietly in a designated area.

    Games can also be sent home with students so they can play them with their parents. Parents usually enjoy this as it

    is a fun way for them to help their child and be involved in what the child is doing at school.

    When playing with the whole class, this provides an ideal time to discuss the skills relevant to the game, e.g. discuss

    the sounds and letters for particular letter patterns like ion, ous, ive and ure when playing Red Word Maker.

    The games also provide an ideal introduction or conclusion to a lesson on a particular skill, e.g. suffixes or plurals.

    Parents

    Selecting the games Not all games will be suitable for the ability level of your child. If a game is too difficult try a simpler game. If it is too

    easy try one of the more advanced games.

    Your childs teacher may be able to help identify which games would be most suitable.

    Involve your child in selecting the games that he/she would like to play. If they are able, let him/her read the

    instructions and choose a game or you can describe how the game is played and let the child choose. Letting the child

    read the instructions is a great reading comprehension activity.

    If your child has a favorite it cant hurt to let them play it over and over.

    Preparing the games Print the games that you require for your child. Store each game in a separate plastic bag, a paper bag or an

    envelope. Allow the child to decorate the bag or the envelope with drawings or fancy writing. Store games in a box. The

    box can be covered with paper and decorated by the child.

    Card can be used to make the games but laminating the card will make the games more durable and more visually

    appealing.

    Involve the child in making the games, e.g. cutting out pieces and putting into bags.

    Making Your Own Games Many of the games provide a blank template so that you can create your own games to target the areas that you want.

    If you require a game that is easier or more advanced than those provided, just print the template/s and add your own

    words or letters as required.

    Children can also be involved in creating the games by suggesting words to be used and completing the templates

    with the words or letters.

    Playing the games Set aside a special games time each day, e.g. just before bed or straight after homework is done.

    Involve the whole family in playing the games. Older children can also play. Once a week involve the whole family in a

    games session.

    Encourage and praise the child for their efforts. Emphasize that having a go is more important that winning.

    Stop playing the games before the child has had enough. Only play while the child is still enjoying the game.

    Younger children can play with older children even if they cant read yet. The younger child might form a team with a

    parent and can still be involved in the game.
