Pumpkin Editable Board Game
I love using board games to teach skills. My kids enjoy them so much and I feel good knowing they are having fun while learning important skills.
When I realized I could make editable board games, I was crazy excited. It has made it so easy to work on a huge variety of skills with my kids – all while using the same game board.
I am so happy about these new themed board games that I am creating. My kids love themed activities, so it really increases their engagement.
The first editable board game is this pumpkin themed version. It is perfect for fall and pumpkin season!
How to Differentiate the Pumpkin Board Game
Students roll a dice, move that many spaces, land on a letter and say its sound.
Students will roll a dice and move to the space with the same number on it. (Can use 6-sided dice, 10-sided dice, or even ten frame dice.)
Students roll two dice, add the numbers together and move to a space with that sum on it.
Students will roll a cube with a letter written on each side and then move to space that matches the letter rolled.
Students will roll a dice, move that many spaces, land on a word and read it out loud.
Students will roll a cube with blends or digraphs written on each side. Students roll the cube and move to a space with a word that includes that blend or digraph.
On a cube, write 1 on two sides, 2 on two more sides and 3 on the remaining two sides. Students roll a 1, 2 or a 3 and move to a word with that many syllables.
As you can see, there are so many ways to use this pumpkin editable board game. I am sure you can think of even more ways to use these with your students!
How to Play the Game
You will fill in the board game with any numbers, letters or words you would like to use.
Students will roll a dice or spin a spinner and move their game piece that many spaces on the game board.
The rules will depend on how you use the game.
When I use the alphabet game board. My daughter rolls the dice and then moves to the space on the game board. When she lands on a letter she tells me the name of the letter and the sound it makes.
My son has been using the game board to reinforce addition facts. He rolls two dice, adds them together and moves to the next corresponding space on the game board. For this one, you can use 6-sided or 10-sided dice.
We are also using the game board for sight words. It makes learning them far more fun than using flash cards or something like that.
I hope you find lots of great ways to utilize these pumpkin editable board games!
