Title: “Eager Explorers: The Exciting EA Adventure!”

Objective: To reinforce the phonics sound “ea” and improve reading skills in a fun and engaging way for 5 and 6-year-olds.

Materials needed: 1. Large game board (drawn or printed) 2. Game cards with words containing “ea” sounds 3. Dice 4. Game tokens (e.g., small toys, buttons, or coins) 5. Timer (optional) 6. Whiteboard or chart paper with markers (for scoring)


  1. Set up the game: a. Place the game board in the center of the playing area. b. Shuffle the game cards and place them face-down in a pile. c. Each player chooses a game token and places it on the “Start” space.

  2. Gameplay: a. The youngest player goes first and rolls the dice. b. The player moves their game token forward the number of spaces indicated by the dice. c. The player picks a game card from the pile and reads the word aloud, emphasizing the “ea” sound. d. If the player reads the word correctly, they stay on that space. If not, they move back one space. e. The next player takes their turn, following steps b-d.

  3. Special Spaces: a. “Word Challenge”: If a player lands on this space, they must create a sentence using a word containing the “ea” sound. b. “Swap Places”: If a player lands on this space, they can choose to swap places with any other player on the board.

  4. Scoring: a. Use a whiteboard or chart paper to keep track of each player’s progress. b. Award one point for correctly reading a word and an additional point for completing the “Word Challenge.” c. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

  5. Time Challenge (optional): a. Set a timer for a specific duration (e.g., 10 minutes). b. Players take turns rolling the dice and moving their tokens as quickly as possible. c. When the timer goes off, the player with the most points wins.

  6. Variation: To make the game more challenging, players can be asked to identify the “ea” sound in a word without seeing the written word on the game card.

Remember to provide positive reinforcement and encouragement throughout the game to keep the children engaged and motivated. Have fun exploring the “ea” sound with the eager little learners!
