There are 16 sets of card games in this package.
Phase 1 has 4 sets
- CVC (2 sets - 63 cards in each set)
- CCVC (2 sets - 63 cards in each set)
Phase 2 has 6 sets
- CCVCC (2 sets - 63 cards in each set)
- CVVC (1 set - 63 cards)
- long vowels with beginning and/or terminal blends (72 cards)
- short and long vowel discrimination (2 sets - 72 cards in each set)
Phase 3 has 6 sets
The contents of the 6 sets are included in the PREVIEW and represent the phonic elements I find most common in intervention.
Each set has 9 SWITCH cards and 9 TAKE TWO cards. I have used a Halloween theme. The SWITCH card switches the phonic element and there is a TAKE 2 card that is used as a strategy card, adding a fun dimension to the game. DIRECTIONS are included.
This game suits students with dyslexia particularly well. I find they enjoy the strategy element and love to play over and over. Their phonemic skills improve markedly. I structure my intervention sessions with short games at the beginning and/or at the end and I sandwich the intensive teaching in between. I mix the phonic elements in the sets to suit the kids I am teaching.
The variety in this bundle means you can target the phonic skills you wish to develop in each session and your kids get the full benefit from explicit teaching plus playing. There is no better way to develop specific skills. You can also add the game to a Literacy Centre, especially if you have an intervention group who know how to play. This is a great way to consolidate skills inclusively.
I have similar sets of cards in my store:
SORT IT CARDS - This game has pictures and words that match and is designed for students who need lots of scaffolding.
DONKEY - This game has no match between pictures and words, ensuring the students must decode the words (just like this game). Donkey does not have the same level of strategising as SWITCHEROO.
I have used a DYSLEXIA FRIENDLY FONT which you can see in the PREVIEW.
