My response: "FCRR! That's where I get tons of reading games!"
She looked at me like I had 10 heads.. She had never heard of the Florida Center for Reading Research! That got me thinking, there must be more teachers who've never heard of this AMAZING resource! I felt the immediate need to share it with you, my lovely blog followers, just in case you hadn't heard of it either!
The Florida Center for Reading Research put together FREE center activities/games for grades K-5. They break the grade levels up by categories. These are listed below. Each category is broken down even further into subcategories (I LOVE how it's organized!)
- Phonemic Awareness

They even have a teacher resource guide! Here you can find FAQs and tips on implementation and management of literacy centers.

Doing this all at once would be insanely overwhelming! I started last year by printing and laminating 1 game per week. Now I have a large collection for my classroom!
What are you still doing here?! Go get some of these fabulous games! :)
