In the is fun card game children explore word families, rhyming words, and spelling patterns, as well as initial consonant sounds and blends. This game also provides an opportunity to learn new vocabulary and homophones. The cards can be used to play the game or for sorting words by word families/spelling patterns. Word families include:
-ake/-eak, -ane/-ain, -ale/-ail, -ade/-aid/-ayed.
The object of the game (very similar to Crazy 8's, but with words) is to be the first player to play all his/her cards by matching the word family, or the initial consonant sound.
