CVC/CVCe Fish Your Wish Magic e Matching Game
1. Run off all Cards and laminate. I would suggest laminating on colored Cardstock so the back is a color not white, but that is just a detail. If you run the colored sheets off in Black and white, they will be a gray color, which is fine, too. Your Choice!!!
2. Cut the cards a part.
3. Run off a copy of the directions on cardstock to include in the game bag or basket and you are ready to go!
4. There are blank cards included if you would like to write and add other words that fit the skill.
Directions: THIS GAME IS LIKE THE OLD FASHIONED GAME GO FISH!
1. This game is for 2-4 players. It can be used as an intervention, review, reteach, station game or anytime you can fit it in. My Kiddos usually did this at a choice time, when they were finished their “have to” work or during indoor recess. It was also used as a concentration game making matches with CVC and CVCe words.
2. Shuffle the deck and deal each player 4-6 cards. The remaining cards are left in a pile in the center of the players. To help your students hold the cards, you can have clip clothespins available for them to clip onto the bottom of the cards to facilitate holding more than one card.
3. Put the unused cards in a pile in the center of the players.
4. The object of the game is to match the correct pairs of CVC words to CVCe words. For example; cap/cape are a match because the short a in cap becomes long when the magic e is added.
5. After the cards are dealt, the players look for matches they might already have in their hand and place them together off to the side.
6. The first player asks for a match. For example, if s/he has the word kit in their hand, they would ask, “Does anyone have the word kite.” If they have the word kite, they would ask for kit so you are always asking for the opposite of what you have in your hand. If you have the short vowel word, you MUST ask for the magic e word. If you have the magic e word, you MUST ask for the short vowel matching word.
7. If no one has the match, then the player who asked takes a card from the pile. If they “fish their wish” and get the card they needed to make the match, they can have another turn to ask for a card from the players. As the game continues, you keep asking for cards and making pairs of CVC/CVCe words until all cards are used. Whoever has the most pairs of CVC/CVCE words is the winner!!
