Dolch Primer Games

We have put together several different Flash games to help kids practice the Dolch words in the Primer list. These games will help with word recognition and spelling. The primer list is usually covered in Kindergarten.

The Dolch Primer list contains 52 words and it follows on from the pre-primer list, which children should master first. The 52 words in the Dolch prier list are: he, was, that, she, on, they, but, at, with, all, there, out, be, have, am, do, did, what, so, get, like, this, will, yes, went, are, now, no, came, ride, into, good, want, too, pretty, four, saw, well, ran, brown, eat, who, new, must, black, white, soon, our, ate, say, under, please.

This game is great for revising and practicing all the words on the Dolch primer list. You will get ten words at random from the list, so you will need to play it a few times to cover the whole list. The game is meant to be for two players but it works fine with just one player.
