This simple and fun card game will provide your students with practice decoding closed syllable words that end in the /k/ sound. Some of the words in the game follow the -ck rule, yet some of them do not. This game is a great opportunity to provide some explicit review of the -ck rule. When a student reads a word, you have a chance to monitor not only decoding, but also understanding of the rule by asking the follow-up question, "Why does this word need/not need a -ck to say /k/ at the end?" My students love this easy game, and I love its versatility. If I remove the special direction cards (i.e. "Go again"), I can use these word cards in many parts of my lesson.
I hope you enjoy this game! I have successfully used it in both small-group and one-on-one Orton-Gillingham intervention lessons.
