This game focuses on phonemics and blending, an essential skill for successful reading. Players have to match beginnings and endings to make 4 REAL WORDS to win. There is a WORD BANK included so players can check their own words and make this an independent activity. I give each player a WORD BANK card and find that they check each other's words anyway. Even when players try to blend non-words, they are developing their blending ability.
I have bundled the games from Phases 1, 2 and 3 as I believe these phases are the foundation for literacy and games are the best way to provide the repetition that some students need.
if you wish to target specific skills quickly I have my Letters, Sounds and Blending screener available. If you want more ideas for intervention my Literacy Intervention Handbook compresses over thirty years of teaching experience and has lots of ideas to try.
