St Patrick’s Day Nonsense Word Game {Free Printable}

Have you heard of nonsense words before?  I hadn’t until my first grader started coming home with lists of nonsense words to review.   A few times a year the students are pulled from the classroom to be evaluated on nonsense words.  As a volunteer in my daughter’s classroom I played a game with students that the teacher provided to practice nonsense words.  I decided to add to her collection by making holiday themed game boards.   Have fun and learn while playing this St Patrick’s Day Nonsense Word Game.

St Patrick’s Day Nonsense Words Board Game

The download includes three game boards with different words so multiple students can play and practice different words.


  • Find something to use as a place marker (any small object will work) and a die (one set per student)
  • The student rolls the die and moves the number of spaces saying the nonsense words as they go past
  • If multiple students are playing they take turns so the adult can help sound out words if necessary
  • Repeat until they reach the finish line

For more information about nonsense words and their importance take a peek at this article from Simply Kinder.
