Valentine’s Day Word Work Board Game
Printable board games (and board games in general) have been such a huge hit with my kids and many of my readers’ students as well.
The editable board games I’ve been sharing all year are a staple in many classrooms now.
This one is super low-prep for teachers and also quite simple for students to use independently.
Just type in the words on the set up page and two board games auto populate with the words – 6 words on each board game. Even the spinner in the middle of the board will auto populate.
Differentiating Word Work
These word work board games are very easy to differentiate because you can type in any words you want.
This means you can use the game board for lots of different sight word lists.
Plus, you can use it to work on CVC words, blend words, digraphs, etc. in a fun and engaging way.
If your students need practice reading words, this game is perfect for you!
Setting Up this Word Work Game
- The Valentine’s Day Word Work Board Game (button to download at the bottom of this post)
- Transparent spinners
- Counting bears, mini erasers, or another small manipulative to use as game pieces. For this one we used heart mini erasers.
Setting Up the Game:
- Print the game boards and slip into write and wipe pockets (or laminate).
- Place a transparent spinner over the cloud spinner on the game board.
That is all! Super easy for you!
Using the Valentine’s Day Sight Words Game
Students will place their game pieces on the top left square.
The first player will spin the spinner and identify the word the spinner landed on and read it out loud.
Then they will find the next instance of that word on the game board and move their game piece to that spot.
Students will take turns spinning the spinner and moving to the next corresponding space on the board until one person lands on the last space on the board. OR, they can keep going around and around the board until time is up.
This is perfect for literacy centers or for small group instruction. Students will have lots of fun spinning, reading words, and moving around the board!
