Compressed Zip File
Be sure that you have an application to open this file type before downloading and/or purchasing.
This game is a great way to practice the long and short vowel sound of i. Kids need to be able to distinguish between long and short vowel sound and this makes it manageable to start. Great for phonemic awareness too!
Print the game board and attach to a file folder. Add the directions to the front and answer key to the back of the folder and laminate.
Print the game cards, laminate and cut.
To store all the pieces, I would use a three-gallon storage bags.
This would make a great addition to a literacy center or a follow-up to your instruction.
Number of players: 2 to 4
• game board
• 24 playing cards
• 1 game marker
1. Shuffle the playing cards and stack them face down next to the game board. Decide which player goes first.
2. The first player draws a card and says the picture name. The player moves his or her marker to the first space that has the corresponding vowel sound for the picture name. Then the player says the picture name and a word that rhymes with it. For example, if the playing card shows a picture of a pig, the player might say the word wig. If the player can use the rhyming
pair in a sentence, he or she can move an extra space.
3. If the player cannot make a rhyming pair or does not use the rhyming pair correctly in a sentence, the player stays put. Play passes to the next player.
4. Play continues as players take turns drawing cards and moving their marker.
5. The first player to reach the finish is the winner.
You will see how much fun your kids will have while learning the sounds of i.
