Connect Four Games

Ok - I am happy to report that I survived the slumber party we hosted last night with seven 2nd grade girls.  It was my daughter's birthday party. And...if I make it through the party (for my son's birthday) with twelve 5 year olds this afternoon... I should receive a special award, right?

I decided to squeeze in a few minutes of peace and quiet (ha!), so I thought I'd share these Connect Four game boards that I use with my students.  Early in the year, I use different versions to help reinforce short vowel word families.  At this time of the year, I use different game boards to reinforce long vowel word families.  I often leave them out for kids to play when they finish their work.  I'm including the directions and three different game boards.

Please feel free to leave feedback.  Hopefully the links will work for you. I've been having a bit of trouble posting my documents.  Now... off to the next big event.  Wish me luck!

  1. Thank you for sharing these. My kids love connect four games. Hope you survive your birthday "fun" this weekend. You may need to take a mental health day to recuperate! SDNana
