This game is intended for use with an Orton-Gillingham reading and spelling program. It covers the "C, CK, K" rule (in the Barton Reading and Spelling System, it is called the "Picnic Chicken Basket" rule) which helps children spell the /k/ sound in the middle of a multisyllable word.
Your student should have been taught the following before playing the game: Open and Closed syllable types; syllable division of V-CV, VC-V, VC-CV, and V-CCV syllables; common digraphs and the most common consonant sounds of letters.
To make the game, you will need:
- Avery 5160 labels (like these
- 1/2 size index cards or flash cards (like these
- plastic reading guides (optional-- or just use index cards as explained in the instructions). They don't have the star ones that I used anymore, but there are really cute Bee ones here
- a six-sided die
Altogether it takes about 10-15 mins to assemble the game.
Note: Depending on scope and sequence of the program you are using, you may need to modify the word-list.
