Read and Roll Activities 

Below you will find a selection of the 'Read and Roll' activities that we use in class. I ask the children to roll their dice and then they get to pick a word from the row that their dice has indicated. They are then asked to sound out and blend any word from that row and if they are successful they cover the word with a counter. The aim is to cover all of the words on the board. I often ask the children to look across the board to see if there are any duplicates of the word that they have already decoded and they can then cover these at the same time. 

Pictures and Captions 

For this activity the children need to read the provided sentences and then draw a line to the matching picture.
