If you're looking for practice with consonant digraphs and are sick of worksheets, this is the perfect place! I created this game to help my reading groups get practice with reading words with digraphs in context. This game can be played in under 10 minutes which makes it ideal for early finishers, filler activities, and centers.
Cards are all labeled with "con. digraphs" which makes it easy to interchange cards with other phonics sets for review and instantly decipher skill from the game.
*5 pages of dino and action cards (print 9 per page)
For 2-4 players
The goal: Be the player with the highest number of dinosaur cards.
Setup: Shuffle the cards and place them face down in a single pile.
*On each player’s turn pick up the top card, read the sentence, and keep the card.
*If a player picks up a lava card, they must place all of their cards on the discard pile.
*If a player picks up a caveman or cavewoman card, read the card and then choose one dinosaur card to take from another player. The caveperson card is then discarded.
*Play continues until the entire deck of cards is used.
*When cards run out, all players count the number of dinosaur cards in their hand. The player with the highest number of dinosaurs is the winner.
*Use cards as fluency practice with lava cards removed.
*Use cards as a grammar review. For example, choose some cards for students to use to find subject/predicate or write the number of nouns or verbs in each sentence.
