Dyslexia programs can be rather dry. In my work with students with dyslexia and students needing phonics work, I found that quick, engaging games and activities went a long way toward keeping students actively engaged. These students need multiple exposures to words. Hopefully this card game will work as well with your students as it does with mine.
This activity is specifically to give students practice reading one-syllable (closed syllables) containing digraphs. The students should know basic consonants, short vowels, and know (or be working on) consonant digraphs (sh, th, ch, wh, and ck).
The file consists of:
Page 1 - Cover page
Page 2 - Directions
Page 3-10 - Game Cards (a total of 48 cards)
Students draw a card. If the card has one dog bone, they read the word. If the card has two dog bones, they read the word and use it in a sentence. If the card has three bones, they read the word, use it in a sentence, and tell something specific about the word (example - it contains the digraph sh). The student that has the most bones at the end is the winner.
This is my first post - let me know what you think!
