8 "bingo cards", each with 9 photographic images representing words with consonant blends, but no long vowels. The first 4 cards focus on a simple blends such as "sl" and "gr". The final 4 cards each focus on one particular consonant blend (sh, th, ch, ing).
Words include some exposure to ending patterns including "ck" and double consonants ("ss", "ll").
Some images refer to Montessori materials, such as images of the brown stair to show "thick" and "thin".
These cards are designed to supplement the "Montessori Consonant Blends Phonics Spelling Cards - "Blue Series" Sets A and B, though they can be used independently. Each bingo card corresponds with one spelling card set, giving the child extra practice with reading and matching words with images.
To complete the activity, the child chooses a word card, reads the word, and places the card on the bingo board over the corresponding photograph. The goal is to match all words to their pictures, thus covering the whole bingo board. This is intended to be a single child activity, or a par activity in which the children are working together to fill the same board.
Easily prepared as a file folder game when laminated and mounted in a file folder, with an envelope to hold the corresponding words cards.
The cards are color-coded blue, for consonant blends. (See "Pink Series" for CVC words and "Green Series" for long vowel patterns).
