I love little games that help teach sight words, letters, (or numbers!) I also love cut/paste activities because they take a long time to do, they keep the children engaged, and they are a bit of a challenge to fine motor skills. Today I have a fun little winter game for you: Do you want to roll a penguin? You can roll a die (with numbers, sight words, letters, etc) and then build your penguin based on the results. As I write this post my 5 year old is busy rolling his sight word penguin. Before we begin, here are some dice you can use for this activity. I also included a paper dice you can create. I have also been told that sometimes you can find editable dice at the dollar store?? I have never seen them there, but that would be pretty cool. Anyway, here is what I found on Amazon.
Do you want to roll a Penguin?
This is a a cute little game. I also included an editable version where you can enter in the letters, numbers, sight words, sums, products, etc that you are wanting the children to practice. You could use Spanish words… there are endless possibilities!

Madreen Karle is a master first grade reading teacher with over 30 years of classroom experience. She taught reading in a special needs and English as a Second Language classroom. After retiring she wrote a reading program to help others learn how to teach reading. She is a trusted educator and author of 5 books to help teach children to read and write. In addition to her books, she is a mentor for 3 websites that give reading teacher tips (Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading, Mrs. Karle’s Reading Patch, and Mrs. Karle’s Handwriting Patch). Through her teaching she learned that confidence was the key to learning to read. A child who is not confident at reading does not like to read and struggles to read. Mrs. Karle created “sunshine moments” to help teach children how to grow their confidence and learn to read.
Meeghan Karle Mousaw (Madreen’s daughter) has her Master’s in Special Education. She has 8 years experience teaching children to read online. In addition, she developed a curriculum to teach children handwriting called The Handwriting Patch. With the Handwriting Patch learning is fun because children learn to draw and learn handwriting at the same time. In 2019 The Handwriting Patch curriculum became an amazon best seller the first year it was released, helping thousands of kids learn handwriting with a unique, fun method. She is mom to 6 kids, each with differently learning abilities and struggles.
The Reading Patch was established by the creators of Mrs. Karle’s Sight and Sound Reading. Together they have been featured on the NBC media outlets and Parents Magazine online. Over the last 8 years in their online platform, Madreen and Meeghan have worked tirelessly with teachers, homeschoolers and parents looking to help children learn to read to become a trusted authority in teaching children to read and advocating early literacy skills. They often partner with other educational experts to deliver the most current information to the Reading Patch community.
