All of these games are based on the Orton-Gillingham Method. They are phonics card games with each game focusing on a different phonics rule.
The games can be played by 2 or 3 children and work well in literacy centers. The free game, Lucky Dog Short Vowel, has words containing the short vowels a, e, i, o, u.
The cards can also be used as flash cards .
Each game consists of 4-6 pages.
For best results use white cardstock and a color printer.
Laminate the pages and cut the cards out.
Directions: Games can be played by 2 or 3 children. All games are played the same way. Each player gets 3 cards. Place the rest of the deck face down and turn one card up placing it next to the deck. Player 1 tries to match the symbol or the letter to the card. If there is no match the player may draw one card to try to get a match. If the player gets the Lucky Dog card it can be put down and any other card after it. Player 2 puts down a card if he has one or draws a card. The winner is the one who gets rid of their cards first. I usually play 3 rounds which takes about 5 minutes.
