Game Type: sorting game for 2-4 players
Includes: game board, picture cards, rules, instructions, and a bonus skill sheet
Short vowels combined with a single consonant make some of the first words that children learn to read. Learning words like “cat” and “rat” is important because the common “at” word family can be generalized to other words like “that,” “splat,” and “flatten.” Welcome to the Neighborhood gives children the chance to practice 9 common short vowel “word families.”
The object of the game is to be the first to cover the 9 rooms on the game board. Players must identify the “word family” that matches each picture in order to place the card in the correct spot. Besides a game board, this game includes 36 picture cards. All of the cards are labeled so if they get misplaced you can instantly return them to their home.
As an extra bonus, with Welcome to the Neighborhood you also receive a special skill sheet to give your student additional practice with short vowel words! Also included are directions for turning this game into a file folder game and a template for printing a folder label. This way it's easy to keep your games organized.
After downloading and printing the file, it will be quick and easy to prepare this game for use. You may print as many sets as your family or class requires, but please don’t make copies to share with others. Laminating your game will help it last longer.
Keep in mind that each printer is different and the colors your printer uses may vary slightly from what you see on our photos or the files.
