Read around the circle; see who’s the last one standing.
The teacher holds a deck consisting of word cards interspersed with SIT cards. Players stand behind their chairs and take turns reading the cards. When a player gets a SIT card, s/he has to sit out for the rest of the round. If a word is misread, the teacher corrects it, and then slips it back into the deck so it will come up again. The aim is to be the last person standing (which is purely a matter of luck.)
I’m honestly not sure why this is such a crowd pleaser. But it works for me as a quick way to identify kids who need more work on a particular short vowel sound, consonant blend or digraph. The word list below includes words from Step 2.2 in the Wilson program. But, of course, you can use any words that suit your purposes.
ponds drags pests quilt thump
flock trap bench squish chunk
soft camp bend pinch fluff
frog clam shelf twig shrug
crop scab press chimp gulp
trot plan self drill slush
