I just love winter. Really, I do. Living in northern Michigan certainly has its benefits and having four very different seasons is only one of many. The kiddos certainly love it when we can vary our activities by adding a holiday or seasonal twist, and in celebration of winter, I’ve created several winter-themed activities for centers and small groups. Here’s one of my favorite games. Just click the link below to download this FREEBIE!
To download this freebie just click the following link: Winter Themed 4 In A Row Game Board
The Four-In-A-Row game is super fun and easy to play. All you need are bingo chips (about 10 of 2 colors) and the printed game board. This game is played with two players which makes it ideal for your independent literacy centers. Players take turns reading a word and then placing their chip on the word. The first player to get 4 of their colored chips in a row either vertically, horizontally or diagonally wins the game. If you download the freebie, I added the directions right in the file. If you print the activity single-sided to double-sided you’ll have the directions right on the back.
If you like this activity, you may enjoy having the complete set containing all 220 sight words from the Dolch list. There are 9 game boards with the words divided into 9 lists of 25 and 4 different game board designs. I’ve also included 4 blank game boards so that you can add your own words.
If you are using the Fry Sight Word list instead of the Dolch, I’ve created the same file using the first 225 words from the Fry list.
