Included in this packet are 81 CVC picture playing cards and directions for two great phonics games:
Alpha-Jump (an “UNO-style” game for decodable CVC words)
Letter Links (a letter sound matching game in the style of “SET”)
Your students will have fun developing their decoding skills and letter sound knowledge playing these two games!
Alpha-Jump is played very much like UNO, except you play your cards by trying to match the consonant sounds or vowel sounds in CVC words. The first player to discard all of their cards is the winner!
Letter Links is another fast-paced game where players lay out 12 CVC cards in front of them and must identify “Links” -- groups of 3 cards that all either share the same beginning sound, the same vowel sound or the same ending sound. After you find a “Link,” you collect your 3 cards and then replace those with 3 new cards from the deck. Play continues until all the cards in the deck are used up. The player who has collected the most Links at the end of the game is the winner!
Perfect for small-group centers, phonics workshop or as a take-home game.
All materials are provided in both color and black-line versions. Laminating is recommended for the picture cards.
