Attack r– controlled vowels from all directions with Bossy Bugs. This package includes 5 game boards, each with a targeted set of ar, er, ir, or and ur words. The first board challenges students to fill in a correct r-controlled combination in the medial position. Board 2 provides practice with words ending in ar, er, ir, or and ur. The other three boards break down r-controlled vowel words into 4, 5 and 6 letter groups with the sounds in all positions. There are a total of 312 word cards, color coded for each game board. “Helper” cards show the –r combinations for hands-on experimentation. Word lists and a student recording sheet are provided. 2-6 students can play, making Bossy Bugs a great center activity.
