Hundreds of FREE ELA Center Games!

One of my 3rd grade team members walked into my classroom the other day while my kiddos were working on their literacy centers. She later asked me where I got the great game one group was playing on the rug. 

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 
  • Phonics 
  • Fluency 
  • Vocabulary
  • Comprehension

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

Teacher Resources Guide

Sample Phonemic Awareness Activity - The Phoneme Game

Sample Phonics Activity - Syllable Scoop

Sample Fluency Activity - Pass the Word

Sample Vocabulary Activity - Affix Action
 

Sample Comprehension Activity - Story Line Up

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! :)
