Nosy Nonsense Words is a game I created to help my students practice decoding and recoding CVC words, and to identify "real" words. This game includes directions for two versions of play, but can be adapted numerous ways. I even use the nonsense and CVC word cards in centers for sorting real v. nonsense words and also sorting by medial vowel.
Instructions for 2 variations of play
72 CVC cards
72 nonsense cards
9 "PHEW!" cards
9 "Mmm!" cards
9 "SNIFF..." cards
This game includes 171 cards! You're free to pick and choose the cards based on student need :)
NOTE: The directions I provided do not include instructions for the real v. nonsense word piece, but it is easily adaptable to either variation of the game and in centers, as stated above.
