This product was designed to supplement Lesson 10 in Level 3 of the Barton Reading & Spelling System but can be used in any Orton-Gillingham or phonics program. Students practice forming and reading contractions in short phrases to achieve fluency. There are five different activities included.
1. Roll 'n Read #1 game--Two to four students play this game. It can also be played with one student and a tutor. Students read the phrases that contain contractions. They can read the phrases a second time and say the two words that form the contractions. A player rolls a die and then reads a phrase in the corresponding box. If read correct, the player highlights the phrase. Players take turns rolling the die and reading a phrase. The person who highlights all of the phrases in one box first is the winner.
2. Roll 'n Read #2 game--Played like Roll 'n Read #1. In addition to reading the phrases, students write down contractions on the blanks for the words that can be combined into a contraction.
3. Roll 'n Read #3 game--Played like Roll 'n Read #1. In addition to reading the phrases, the students write down the two words used to form the contractions in the phrases.
4. Phrase flash cards--Students practice reading short phrases individually or with a partner. Thirty-five cards include contractions. Another thirty-five cards contain two words that can be formed into a contraction.
5. Writing Activity--Students use phrases from the flash cards to write sentences.
