Get ready for some real and nonsense word fun! Your students will read the cards and sort them in two piles: real or nonsense words. The digraphs that are featured are ch, sh, th and wh with each digraph having 8-9 words that are real and 9 that are not real. A majority of the word cards are short vowel words. I have also included a sheet to follow up after the game is finished. Students can use 3 of the real words from each digraph to write a complete sentence.
This activity will help with reading and decoding digraph words with short vowels as well as reading fluency for pracitce with Nonsense Word Fluency tests found with DIBELS or AIMSweb. It is also perfect for intervention work, small guided groups, Words Their Way game days, or when you have an extra parent to help with a group of children at center time.
