Here is a fun and hands-on way to practice applying letter sounds and decoding skills to read nonsense words. I printed the sheets, cut out the hats, and glued them to a popsicle stick. You could just as easily just print and cut out the cards without using sticks. My kids absolutely love playing this game!
A student draws a card/stick and reads the nonsense word. If they read it correctly, they get to keep it. If they do not read it correctly, they have to put it back. If a student draws a card with a smiley face they get to take another turn.
Included in this download:
- 50 nonsense word cards.
- 4 happy face cards
- 6 sad face cards
