Students play with a partner to practice digraphs and blends. Versatile and can be modified to fit needs.
1. Start with both players having a game piece on the starting line. The center cards* should be spread out and face-up for all players to see.
2. A partner rolls dice* and moves their game piece accordingly, then chooses a card (which are spread out face-up) with the digraph or blend they landed on. If the player reads the card correctly, he remains in the space in which he landed and he puts the card face down in the red square on the board. If he reads in incorrectly, he must go back to previous space and the card replaced face-up in the spread for all to see.
3. The next player takes a turn. Players alternate turns until someone lands on the finish line.
4. If a player needs a card that is no longer available, they can remain in the space they landed only if they can draw from the face-down pile and read TWO cards back-to-back (whether or not they included the digraph or blend the player landed on).
