Blends Freebie

I'm dropping in for a quick post to share a FREEBIE with you! I used this Roll a Blend with my first and second grade small groups.  My students loved it! 

Roll a Blend

This activity can be done with a pair of students or in teams.  We played with teams.  When playing with teams, the teacher rolls the die.  Team members take turns going against each other to be the first to say a word that begins with the blend next to the number the die lands on.

Keep track of points and words that have been used by using the recording sheet.  I require the students to use different words than the ones previously used.  If they say a word that has already been used, they need to say another word that begins with that blend to get the point.

This can also be done in a station with pairs.  Each student takes a turn rolling the die and saying a word that begins with that blend.  I've included a recording sheet for pairs.

 You can download this freebie from my Dropbox by clicking on the cover below.  Also, check out the other blend boards.  You'll notice that some of the boards have "Player's Choice".  If the die lands on this, the player can say a word that begins with any blend on that board.

I hope your students have as much fun with this activity as my students did!  Leave me a comment to let me know what you think about this activity.  I'm linking up with Manic Monday at Classroom Freebies.

  1. This looks like it should be great fun. I'll try it out next week. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi, I can't download a copy of these games. Do you have them for sale in your TPT shop? Tried looking for them but couldn't find them there. Thanks, Stephanie
