Concept: R-blends (br, cr, gr, tr)
Game Type: sorting game for partners
Includes: game board, 25 game cards, rules, instructions, and a bonus skill sheet

Once children have mastered consonants, the next goal is learning beginning blends. This game is perfect for helping early readers take that step forward. Whether you’re a homeschooler, tutor, classroom teacher, or parent looking for learning activities, you’ll find the R-Express as useful as it is fun. Focusing on 4 r-blends (tr, gr, cr, and br) players sort pictures by beginning sounds. Partners take turns choosing cards, identifying the blend and placing it on their boards. The winner is the first player to load her train with all 4 blend cards.

This game includes 2 train game boards, 25 game cards (5 for each blend and 5 action cards like go again, miss a turn, etc.) and directions for play. Also included are instructions for turning the game into a file folder game.

As an extra bonus, the R-Express game includes a special skill sheet to give your student extra practice with beginning blends.

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.
