There are 18 games in this package including a BLANK BOARD game if you want the flexibility of adding your own words:
- short a, e, i, o and u in CVC words (5 games)
- discrimination of short vowel sounds in CVC words (3 games)
- 1 BONKERS game (CVC)
- short a, e, i, o and u in CCVC words (5 games)
- discrimination of short vowel sounds in CCVC words (3 games)
- 1 BONKERS game (CCVC)
I developed this game for my younger students who needed lots of exposure to words at this level. The game element keeps them playing and learning which leads to fluency in decoding. I have also added a BONKERS game with pseudo words.
The use of nonsense words ensures that my students are blending the sounds at a phonemic level and not relying on their visual memory. This is a skill they need for decoding new words as their reading ability improves. I explain the interdependence of visual and auditory skill development in my LITERACY INTERVENTION HANDBOOK, available on my TpT site also.
I introduce the BONKERS game last.
This package of games is organised according to the short vowel sound so you can just use the games you need or mix them up and add them to a Literacy Centre for all your students. This way they can be used for the whole class.
All you need to get started is a die and a counter for each player. Directions for play are included with the blank board game.
Words are written in a DYSLEXIA FRIENDLY FONT to be inclusive of all learners.
I have also bundled Phases 1 to 3 for a special price if you are interested.
