Snake Game (3 letter words)

This game gives children practice reading simple three-letter words.

Snake Game

You will need: 

  • a dice
  • a counter for each player (you can use buttons, coins, dried beans, bottle tops)


The child throws the dice and moves a counter around the board.  If they land on a word, they must say the word and move their counter forward to a picture of that word. If they land on a picture, they must move their counter back to the matching word. Whoever gets to the end of the board first is the winner.
