Product Description
Here is a simple center activity to practice decoding words with open syllables. The first syllable is the open syllable for all of the words because it is intended for students who are just beginning to learn how to decode open syllables.

This is a card game that matches the first open syllable with the second syllable. The cards are color coded so that students can see immediately see how to sort the cards for game play. The open syllable cards are red and yellow. The second syllable cards are blue and yellow. (I do not call the blue and yellow cards "closed" because not all of the syllables are true closed syllables.)

This game is intended for second, third, and fourth grade students. The ideal number of players is four, but you can go with a few as two and as many as six.

HOW TO PREPARE: Each player is dealt 5 second syllable cards. The remaining cards are placed face down on the table. The open syllable cards are placed face down on the table, as well.

HOW TO PLAY: The player to the left of the dealer begins play. He draws an open card. If he has a match, he reads the word. He keeps the pair and draws another card to replace the card he used. If he does get a match, the player can decide to trade one of his second syllable from the pile or he can pass to the next person. If he trades a card and makes a match, then he keeps the pair and draws to replace his matched card. If he does not have a match, he puts the open card under the pile. The next player tries. If he passes, he puts the open card at the bottom of the pile and lets the next person try.

GAME END: The game is over when the first person runs out of cards. The player with the most matches wins.

I have found that children will help each other, even if they are competing against one another. Sometimes the children will make up their own rules, but the objective always stays the same.

The Common Core Standards are:
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.2.3.c
Decode regularly spelled two-syllable words with long vowels.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.3.3.c
Decode multisyllable words.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.3.3
Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.4.3
Know and apply grade-level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.4.3.a
Use combined knowledge of all letter-sound correspondences, syllabication patterns, and morphology (e.g., roots and affixes) to read accurately unfamiliar multisyllabic words in context and out of context.

This game includes one title pages, directions, standards, 48 open syllable cards and 48 syllable cards, and an answer sheet.

This activity is very good for independent practice because I put the answer key in the finished envelope. The children can check each other's work, so they don't have to bother me while I am working with other children.
