Word Checkers; An Exercise to Develop Word Recognition
To provide practice in word recognition or phonic sounds
Small squares of paper with sight words or phonic sounds on them
You or the student covers the black squares with the words. The game is played the same as regular checkers, but the player must say the word that appears on the square before a checker is placed on that space. (To give students extra practice, have them say the words three times before moving the checkers.)
Phonic sounds may be used instead of words.
