This package contains:
-- GAME BOARD
-- WORD BANK (346 words)
-- 224 CARDS (112 beginnings and 112 endings)
I use this game when students are starting to deconstruct multisyllabic words. It encourages analysis at morpheme level and discourages guessing. It builds vocabulary at the same time.
There is a WORD BANK of 346 words to make it an independent activity. Players can check their words as they play. There are blanks in the word bank for you to add any additional words. I have revamped the game and separated beginnings and endings. That way it is easier for you to print them on two different colours. This has proven to be more effective with my kids as they place their six 'stash' cards beside their board. You can see them thinking of a compound word to match a card that they have and identifying if they need a beginning or an ending.
Making sure that players display their cards for all to see encourages all the players to blend one another's words. In this way it is like the MEMORY card game where players have to memorise where a card has been discarded by a previous player if they need it.
You can add the game to a Literacy Centre for independent skill building using the WORD BANK. I use it for RTI when my kids need to develop more deconstruction skills. I have described how I identify the students who need this skill in my
--- LITERACY INTERVENTION HANDBOOK --- which you will find at
There are plenty of games in my store and I recommend them for skill building. They provide the repetition that some kids need and the fun that all learners benefit from. It's the perfect way to be inclusive.
