There is nothing like a little competition to get students excited about learning!
This game was created to meet the needs of students when learning to read decodable words with a closed syllable pattern (cvc) with automaticity.
Reading nonsense words forces students to use their decoding skills. The better they read nonsense words the easier it will be for them to read real words. The rules I have listed for this game require the students to be fast and quick (reading the word in 2 seconds before they move), but if they are just learning this skill, then being able to read the word is good enough. This game is easy to differentiate.
The game includes a game board and 99 cvc nonsense word cards. There are 16 cards for each vowel (except 15 for u) and 4 for each of the digraphs and qu-/-ck.
