Don't you love easy NO PREP resources that you simply print and give to the kids.
These new Easter Games are designed as print and play games.

In this game players hunt for pairs that add to 13 or 14. The last player to find a pair is the winner.
In this game, players try to make a line of 4. They roll the dice, add the numbers together and then take the total from 13.
All that you need for these games are colored pencils and dice. They really are NO PREP games!
 
There are 10 games in this set - 5 for addition and 5 for subtraction.

Easter Literacy Freebies

Easter is almost here and I have some Easter word puzzle freebies that will let the kids play around with Easter words and have some fun while still doing something worthwhile and educational!

 
Easter Word Puzzles FREEBIE !
These Easter word puzzles can be printed in color or in black and white.
 
In this one, children are given the Easter word with the first and last letters removed. They have to work out the word and add the missing letters.

In this Easter word puzzle, children have to work out the Easter word that has been written in circle. The tricky part is not knowing where the word starts or ends.
 
Download these now at
 
Hope the kids have heaps of fun with these.
 
I also have lots more Easter Word Puzzles and some Easter Word Games at
 
This set is loaded with Easter Word Puzzles and Easter Word Games.
This Easter Word Search is different. The children are rewarded with a riddle after they have found all of the Easter words.

This is a game where players match the contraction to the two words that make the contraction. The player who makes the longest line in their color is the winner.

In this Easter Word Game, the players take turns to spell words using the letters on the board. Off course it becomes much harder as there are fewer and fewer letters left uncovered.
 
Here is another of the board games. Players take turns to move around the board and read the word. If it is a real word they have another turn. If it isn't they stay where they are.
 

Another Easter Word Puzzle where children have to work out the word from the letters they are given.

Just a few of the puzzles and games in the Easter Literacy Puzzles and Games set.
Available now at
 
Happy Easter Everyone!

Word Ladders - Great Literacy Game!

I love using games in the classroom and this is one that is easy to prepare, easy to learn and great for making kids think about spelling and letter patterns.

The game is word ladders and all you need to play is a whiteboard or somewhere for children to make a list of words.  
 
Word Ladders can be a game for 2 players or 2 teams or it can be a challenge to give individuals.
Start with a simple 3 or 4 letter word and players take turns to change only one letter to make a new word.
A word can't be repeated in a game. The game ends when a player can't make another word.
This game can also be played by the whole class with the class divided into 2 teams.

 
A great challenge for individuals is to give them a start word and ask them to make a word ladder that is as long as possible in a given time. Children can compete to see who can make the longest word ladder.

 
Here are some words that you might use to start the word ladder.
Easy game - cat, pet, pig, hot, bug.
Getting harder - time, name, line, rose.
More challenging - meet, moon, band.
 
This game is similar to the Word Change games in 2 of my phonics games collections.
 
   

   
In the Word Change games in this set, the players take turns to place a letter card over a letter on the board. Great game to make them really think!
 
There are also some CVC Word Change games in

   
 
Hope the kids enjoy playing the Word Ladders Game!

Domino Math Games

There are so many different ways to use dominoes in math.

Here are a few of my favorite ones.

Domino Keepers Addition

a game for 2 players (or two teams)
All of the dominoes are placed in the centre face down.
Both players pick up a domino at the same time.
Each player tells the sum of the dots on their domino, e.g. 2+4=6, 5+3=8.
The player with the highest answer keeps both dominoes. If both players have the same answer, each keeps a domino. The winner is the player or team with the most dominoes when all dominoes have been picked up.

Domino Keepers Multiplication

a game for 2 players (or two teams)
Play this game as above but instead of adding the two numbers on the domino, multiply them.
These games tick all of the boxes - the kids love them, they are simple to play and all you need is a set of dominoes!
