Practice the special sounds -ou- and -ow- with this unique mini game!

Includes 10 playing boards, 45 reading cards, and 48 markers.

Give each player a vertical playing board (one house) and a pile of markers (mice). On each turn, players draw a reading card and read out loud the 4 words on the card, paying special attention to the 2 words with the /ou/ sound. After reading, the player hunts for those 2 words on their playing board, and if a match is found the space is covered.

The winner is the first to cover all 8 spaces on their playing board -- or the player with the most spaces covered after time is up.

The cards and playing boards can also be used independently of each other as reading flashcards.
