This package consists of 4 sets of cards and is based on the old DONKEY Card Game. There are 26 cards (13 rhyming pairs) in each set and one DONKEY CARD. DIRECTIONS for play are also included.
This can be a very quick game that hones phonemic awareness (the foundation skill of reading) or it can last for a while and consolidate this level of skill. You can extend the game and exposure to the phonic elements this way: The first player to lose can take the D of DONKEY and then another letter of the word each time they lose. The first player to get to the Y (having lost 6 games) is the loser.
The fun element means your students will want to play it over and over. I also send it home for FAMILY FUN TIME.
This Phase builds on the Phase 1 skills (CVC). The rhyming element in each word is in red print to facilitate matching the rhyming pairs. The pictures do not match deliberately because players need to read the words to decode. If your students need a higher level of scaffolding with matching pictures and words, you need my SORT IT card game which is designed for this level of ability.
To extend your students who need an extra challenge you may be interested in my SWITCHEROO game which has the same phonic elements, but a more complex game strategy. Including the three games in a Literacy Centre would differentiate for different ability levels in your class.
I have used a DYSLEXIA FRIENDLY FONT to be inclusive of all learners.
