PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I put these cards together when I realized my ESL students were really struggling with these letter combinations. They were older (grade six) and reluctant to read. However, they loved card games, so this was a happy compromise!
This package includes:
-12 different words for each blend (th, sh, tr, ch, sl, cl, sk, st)
-Optional backing for the cards
Instructions:
Each ‘blend’ has two pages of 6 cards. Print each of these pages twice, so that you will have pairs of each word. If desired, also print the backing that matches. If doing this, you will need to print four of each ‘blend’ backing.
I recommend printing on cardstock and laminating. I printed the backs on separate pieces of cardstock and laminated them together with the front for extra thickness and durability.
There are two options for assembling the decks: either keep each blend separate and have 8 small decks, or combine several blends to have bigger decks. If doing the latter, I suggest not printing the backs, as then students will be able to see what other players have.
Once assembled, have fun playing Go Fish! Students will catch on quite quickly that they need to pronounce the words slowly and clearly, as there are many that rhyme and can be easily misheard.
I put these cards together when I realized my ESL students were really struggling with these letter combinations. They were older (grade six) and reluctant to read. However, they loved card games, so this was a happy compromise! This makes for a great literacy centre or task for fast finishers.
Enjoy, and thanks for shopping!
