This package by Ruth Rumack contains 5 activities to practice discriminating between long vowel sounds and decoding to read and spell Bossy E words.
The activities include the following:
- Memory Match: Students match decodable words to easily-identifiable images
- Word Frames: Students fill in Elkonin boxes to spell CVCE words
- Word Ladder: Students read clues and change one letter from the previous word to spell new CVCE words

This pack also includes 3 culminating board games and activities, as well as suggestions for supplementary large group, small group, and at-home games.
At-home games are kinesthetic and promote phonological awareness and reinforcement of spelling rules.
