PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a black and white set that comprises 6 games:
- prefix dis (45 cards)
- prefix in (45 cards)
- prefix un (45 cards)
- prefixes ir, il, im, ig (45 cards)
- easy prefixes (also available as a freebie) (45 cards)
- harder prefixes (45 cards)
- Direction for playing

The lists of words I have used are included in the PREFIX if you want to check them for Australian/American spelling.

This game is a favourite and I would play with my intervention kids every day. The sets have grown over the years as the needs of the kids have expanded. This set started off as a black and white one based on opposites and just grew while all the other DONKEY games are coloured and started off as phonic resources. Unfortunately, you can't mix and match the OPPOSITES with any of the other sets for this reason. The cards are a bit smaller. There are opposites in the PREFIX set though if you want a coloured card.

Once my kids get to Phase 6 they have all their basic phonic elements and are ready to learn to syllabicate and blend syllables. Their vocabulary needs to expand and this is where the opposites fit. DONKEY presents these words in a fun format and they love to play, so they see the words over and over without any complaints. They are beginning to understand the language and, hopefully, develop a love of words and reading. Or, at the very least, become proficient readers.

I would put these games into a Literacy Centre for the whole year. They start at the easy level, so you can easily differentiate and kids can move up through the levels. If they get tired of it, introduce SWITCHEROO, another game I have developed which is a little harder, but appeals as well. It has a strategy element that facilitates syllabication and phonemic awareness and will suit the thinkers in your class.
