If you're bored with doing simple flashcards, check out this review game for your classroom. This reviews digraphs (th, ch, wh, ph) in the context of sentences within a card game. Each game takes 7-10 minutes to play with 4 players.
You get: 40 cards (print 9 per page), gingerbread cookie picture, and directions. Because each card is labeled with phonics skill, you can easily mix and match other versions of this game to incorporate various phonics skills.
For 2-4 players
Setup: Shuffle the cards and place them face down in a single pile. Place the gingerbread card at the center of the table.
*On each player’s turn pick up the top card and read the sentence.
*If the card has an action, follow the directions on the card. When the gingerbread card jumps, it can be taken from any player without a gingerbread card. If a gingerbread card is used by any player, it is then discarded.
*Read the sentence on the card and discard. If you get a gingerbread house card, take the cookie and keep the card until it is needed.
*Be the player with the gingerbread cookie at the end of the game.
