Blend Game with long and short vowels!
This product is designed to be used in a word study program, like Words Their Way. You can put this in a word study center or use it in small groups. The focus of this game is the blends with long and short vowels using pictures.
I suggest printing the game cards on colored card stock, laminating, and then cutting. I would print the picture cards back to back with the green digital paper (included), laminating and cutting. I’ve included both a color and black and white set. If you decide to use the black and white set, print it on colored card stock so that kids cannot see through to the pictures when they are face down.
You will also need to laminate the spinner and add a paperclip and a pencil, so that the kids can spin when it is their turn.
Lastly, you will also need a mailing envelope to house the cards and the spinner.
Print the directions and adhere them to a mailing envelope and then laminate the envelope for durability.
To play, kids start with a blank game board and nine cards are dealt out and laid on each player's game board. First player spins the spinner and whatever blend it lands on, s/he says the blend and then looks at his/her game board and removes as many pictures from the board that match the blend. Then s/he draws from the pile and takes as many cards to replace those now missing. The game continues until all replacement cards are gone and the first board cleared is the winner. This can be played with 2-3 people.
Great addition to a word work center for use during independent time.
