Literacy Center Games

Word Family Scattergories™:
This activity is named after the Scattergories board game. Spin one of the word wheels below. They then use the worksheet to record words that can be made in the time the sand timer takes to empty. They can use initial consonants or consonant blends to make words. Students then read the words they have made. They must cross out any words that other players also made. They get a point for each word they make that no one else made. (Use a paper clip and pencil to spin the wheels)
