This small group or whole class activity focuses on the final /j/ sound - -dge and -ge. It is a bingo style game. Students look at a word card with the /j/ ending missing, search their board for the correct ending and complete the word in the corresponding space of their choice. 8 game boards are included—more than one student can work with the same board pattern, since the choices they make will create different outcomes. Some spaces contain more than one word, addding even more variability. 50 word cards make every game a new learning experience.
To prepare just print out the boards, cards and answer key. Cut apart the cards. Photocopy the game boards, or place them in dry-erase sleeves.
