This package contains:
--- 8 GAME BOARDS
--- 48 SENTENCE CARDS
--- A4 size POSTER
I have continued this theme after the success of the game addressing the confusion between 'then' and 'than'.
Most of my students have specific skill deficits and I have noticed a number of word pairs that are confused. These two - QUIET and QUITE - are often misused. The game format means students are motivated to play it over and over. There's six sentences on each board but students need to read more sentences than this in each game. Compare this to a worksheet and you will see that there is more repetition by playing a game, and it's fun to boot. It's the time-efficient way to address this type of skill deficit.
I laminate these games and have them ready for a quick activity, usually less than 5 minutes before or after an intense intervention session. It's well worth the initial investment in laminating and packaging it up for easy access. It will last for years. The game can be added to a Literacy Centre and is self-managing with the Answer Sheets. I also send games home for Family Fun Time when I know parents want to be involved. Either way, regular playing for about a week and the skill is mastered.
This is an updated product. The cards have been reformatted so they'll fit more easily on to the boards and I have changed the font. All the boards are now incorporated into one PDF file. There is only one set of sentence cards as I have found it's enough to remediate the skill very quickly.
