Are your students able to apply decoding rules to short words, but falter when they reach bigger words?
This bright, cheerful game- perfect for back-to-school or anytime!- gives kids practice chunking multisyllabic words in a fun way! Each card has a multisyllabic word with slight spaces between syllables or other small word parts to help students build confidence and skills decoding longer words. Practice using the "Chunky Monkey" strategy with this pack, featuring the prefixes un-, mid-, re-, dis-, and trans-. Most words in this pack are 2-3 syllables long.
Students take turns drawing cards. If they read the card correctly, they get to keep it! They have to watch out, though-- they may find a "You're Stuck!" card that makes them give some cards back, or a "You're Sharp!" card that gives them extra cards from the pile! The surprise of these cards add some suspense to the game and my students LOVE playing it in a center!
This version includes 8 cards featuring each prefix listed above, as well as "Sharp!" and "Stuck!" cards to spice up the game!
