There are three separate games in this download: CVC Words, Magic E words and CVC Words that “turn into” Magic E words. Each card game has a separate title card to help with organization.
These games can be used at a center or as a formative assessment in small group instruction. They can also be used by a teacher, support staff or volunteers to reinforce skills. Every day in my small groups, we take a “test” using one of the card games. I can quickly determine which words/skills my students are struggling with and adjust my teaching accordingly (formative assessment!!). Taking a test at the end of the small group session is also a fantastic way to motivate students to finish all of their work!
There are several spinners included in this packet. In my classroom, we use a spinner at the end of every game to determine the winner. This way, the person with the most cards is NOT always the winner! It also adds an element of math into the lesson – counting and comparing numbers!. To use the spinner, just print on cardstock &/or laminate. Use a brad and cut out the arrow (or use a paper clip) to make the “spinner”.
