Are your students able to apply decoding rules to short words, but falter when they reach bigger words?
This game gives kids practice chunking multisyllabic words in a fun way! Each card has a multisyllabic word with slight spaces between syllables or other small word parts to help students build confidence and skills decoding longer words.
Students take turns drawing cards. If they read the card correctly, they get to keep it! They have to watch out, though-- they may find a Naughty card that makes them give some cards back, or a Nice card that gives them extra cards from the pile! The surprise of the Naughty and Nice cards add some suspense to the game and the students LOVE it!
This version includes suffixes -tion, -ing, -less, -ness, and -al.
If you enjoyed this freebie, look for similar games in my store, including the Trick or Treat Multisyllabic Word Game.
*Note: This game does include pictures of Santa & Mrs. Claus, so keep that in mind if you have a diverse student population that steers away from Christmas-themed activities. Thank you!
