This intervention game is intended for students who have difficulty decoding multisyllabic words with suffixes. The game is designed for up to four players and is simple to play. Students take turns drawing a card from the deck and moving their token along the track to try to make it to the food bowl from the dog house before all of the other players. The skills that students work on throughout the game include visual discrimination skills, chunking, blending phonemes and applying phonetic skills. Students practice decoding real dog themed words with suffixes.
The game board should be printed out, pieced together and glued on tagboard for support if you would like it to last. Tokens need to be printed on card-stock or tagboard to stand up without flopping over. Paperclips for tokens are not included.
