Valentine’s Day Phonics Board Games

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 are some of my most popular posts.

So I created another print and play board game for students to use in addition to those.

This one is super low-prep for teachers and also quite simple for students to use independently.

You get the whole phonics set for FREE! This includes beginning sounds, middle vowel sounds, and ending sounds – for a total of nine different board games!

Using the Valentine’s Letter Sounds Games

Students will place their game pieces on the top left square.

The first player will spin the spinner and identify the letter the spinner landed on. Then they will determine what sound that letter makes.

Next, they will look at the pictures on the game board and try to find the next instance of one that starts with that sound. This is where they will land until their next turn.

For example, if they land on the letter “b” they will move from space to space and ask themselves if that object starts with the “b” sound. Once they get to a space that does start with a “b” they will keep their game piece at that space until their next turn.

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.

One thing we have started doing lately is that every time someone crosses over the last space on the game board, they get a point. Then we start again and do the same thing.

At the end of the time allotted, we count up how many points each player has and the one with the most is the winner!

This is perfect for literacy centers or for small group instruction. Students will have lots of fun spinning and moving around the board!
