It is spring and St. Patricks Day which means lots and lots of rainbows! If you’re looking for rainbows, this game will not disappoint! It’s all about rainbows and letter sounds that match St Patricks day (R, C, and G). So grab your preschoolers (or any kid working on letter sounds) and have some fun! This is meant to be a short game just for the younger kids.
This game is part of a one day St Patricks Day unit study. It’s not *quite* ready yet, but it’ll be posted within a few days. If you’d like to most up to date details, the newsletter is the place to be. Get on the list for the unit study here:
Simple Letter Sound Board Game for Preschoolers
We love making board games around here and I wanted to do something for the preschool range. Learning letter sounds can be fun! This game just focuses on 3 letter sounds to make it more simple. There are 3 cards per letter (they may need to be reshuffled in to get through the game!)
Setting up the Board Game
I recommend printing on cardstock so it withstands game play, especially the cards. This game board is on a single piece of paper, so no taping the board together.
To make the game pieces simple cut out on the lines and tape the long ends together to make a circle.
The cards should be printed double sided.
How to Play the Rainbow Letter Sounds Game
I intentionally made game play very simple so the youngest of kids could learn it! Just draw a card, figuring out the beginning sound, and move to the corresponding letter.
For instance, if you draw the cactus card, you’d sound out the ‘c’ sound and determine it was a ‘c’. Then move your piece to the next space with the letter ‘c’ on it.
