Product Description
This engaging alternative to traditional word sorts will help your students master these tricky spellings of the final /air/ sound.
Students mix and match –air, -are, -ear, -eir, and –ere word endings with initial word chunks to form words with these five /air/ endings. There are 110 cards, which combine
to make 51 words (there is used in all the sets to represent this oddball spelling). The initial letters of the word show the dog, and the final syllable shows it in another pose, activity or costume. By mixing and matching the two types of cards for each dog, all of them can
be used to form words. If a student makes a mistake, he/she will likely catch it when they don’t have the proper ending for another word. The cards allow for easy hands-on experimentation with the final spellings. There are 5 sets of 22 cards (11 words). Each set has a mixture of the five final spellings. Give each student a set (or more than 1 set) of cards. An optional recording sheet is included for students to write down the words they form.
To play as a game, choose as many sets of cards as you have players. Put the dog picture cards (matching the cards chosen and equal to the number of players) in a facedown pile. Each player takes a card. This is his/her dog for the game. Shuffle the word cards into a facedown pile. Players take turns flipping over the top card. If it features his/her dog, the player keeps the card. If it is not a match, it goes in a discard pile. When a player has 2 or more cards, he/she can put down any two which form a word, after they draw their card for that turn. If a player forms a word with an incorrect final spelling, he/she must put those cards in the discard pile (players can each take the word list for another player to check answers). Shuffle the discard pile and reuse when needed. The first player to form 8 words wins the game (or play until one player forms all 11 of his/her words).
Preparation is easy—just print out the instructions, word list, word cards and picture cards. Laminate the cards and cut them apart. Photocopy the recording sheet if desired, and let the fun and learning begin!
