FRENCH Literacy Game for conscience phonologique – Holidays (roule et couvre)
Roule et couvre – les fêtes is a simple, fun partner game that can be used during small-group time or as a literacy centre to help students practice identifying beginning sounds in words, identifying blends or “sons composés” in words, counting the number of syllables in a word and using holiday vocabulary, en français!
Do your students need a little extra motivation and fun to get them practicing important phonological awareness skills? Looking for something new and different for your literacy centres – the kind of activity that your students will LOVE and not even realize they are learning while playing?
Roule et couvre may be just the game you are looking for! Use this simple, fun game during small-group time or as a literacy centre to help students practice :
✓ identifying beginning sounds in words
✓ identifying blends or “sons composés” in words
✓ counting the number of syllables in a word
✓ holiday vocabulary, en français
15 different game boards and 15 different dice included!
How to prep and use this game:
- Print and laminate the game boards and assemble the dice you need (cut the solid lines and fold the dotted lines)
- Provide each student with 10 counters (jetons)
- Students will play in teams of two. They roll the dice and identify a corresponding image on their side of the game board (ex. Quelle image démontre quelque chose qui commence par la lettre b? Bonbon!), then cover it with a jeton and pass the dice to their partner
- If they roll something they have already covered, tough luck – they only get to roll once per turn. The first to cover up all 10 images or letters wins!
These games also include a LOT of new vocabulary words for your French immersion students – they will be saying these new words over and over while figuring out the sounds/syllables in each word! Due to regional differences, I have included a list of the words I had in mind for each game board.
