This game helps students understand or reinforce consonant blend sounds. It is best used after students have learned the consonant blends on the board. The game can be played as an intervention activity with the teacher, as an informal assessment for students to turn in their provided word list, or to be used in reading centers. Admittedly, the theme might appeal to boys more. This is meant purposefully. This is a reading game that could capture the attention of your male students who might be reluctant to read. It also will find favor with your female students who lean towards comic book, superhero, and science fiction themes (I have one in my family).
