Are you looking for a small group activity to help your students read AU/AW words and short sentences. "Don't Pick the Claw" is a great game to get your students motivated to read the words! Shuffle the cards. Put them in a bag or place them in the middle of a table. Have students pull a card. If they can read the word, sentence or phrase on the card they get to keep the card. If they get a “claw” card they lose all of their cards.
