This FUN NWF DIBELS activity is a great way to practice reading and blending nonsense words. This "Bang" style activity can be used for RtI, small group intervention, or literacy centers.
60 nonsense word cards (12 for each short vowel sound)
12 Gutter Ball Cards
12 Strike Cards
How to Play:
Place bowling pin word cards into a pile or container. Students take turns drawing a card from the pile. If they draw a word card and can read it correctly, they keep their card. If they are incorrect, it goes back into the pile. If they get a "Gutter Ball" card, all of their cards must go back. If they get a "Strike" card, they can get another turn. The student with the most cards at the end is the winner!
