This shows the finished game
After trying many pre-made ways to reinforce phonics with my two children I finally decided to make it myself. I connected four piece of square cardstock (in the same fashion as a board game) drew on a "road" and on the spaces I either wrote a phonetic sound or group of sounds and a ? or a ? and a phonetic sound or group of sounds..then I made two stacks of cards on with beginnings and one with endings. I made a simple spinner from cardstock, two eyelets, and a fastener brad. Basically the pieces are buttons with stickers on them, and I did include several special spaces on the board as well. Each child spins the spinner moves the spaces and draws an appropriate card if it makes a word great the child moves again if not the child holds on to the card until the next turn. Cards still in the child's hand can be used on the next turn or saved if it doesn't make a word.
