Pop for Word Families Giveaway

I just tried out the word game Pop for Word Families by Learning Resources and it was lots of fun! I used it with the little boy I have been tutoring this summer. There are several ways to play the game. We played where you spin the spinner, take that many pieces of popcorn from the tub, and make a word for each piece of popcorn. For every word family ending you read correctly you get to keep the piece of popcorn. For example, if your piece of popcorn says "ake" then you might say "cake" or "rake. The person with the most pieces of popcorn at the end of the game wins! If you pull a "pop" then all of your pieces go back into the tub. The game comes with short and long word families so you can easily differentiate based on the students you have playing. It is a fun way to practice reading word families, making words, and recognizing the difference between long and short vowels sounds.

This game would make a great addition to literacy centers or the daily five word work rotation. After you play it repeatedly in whole group, you can move it into word work. If you want to add a recording sheet or writing component to it then have students record the words they read or see how many words they can make for each word family. The possibilities are endless!!

I really like the talk bar. I think it would be really great to use with story sequence.

I like all the POP games- seems like they have a lot for all subject areas and different topics. I love games that the rules and routines are the same but the content changes- makes it fast and easy!
