PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This fun and engaging game is great as a beginning of the year "getting to know you" activity. Each student receives a one page game sheet with 30 squares, each of which has a letter pattern or phonetic clue. The object of the game is to find a classmate whose name matches each clue on the page OR continue the "name search" for a period of time determined by the teacher. A quick look may give the impression that the game is for young children only,but most of the clues require solid phonemic awareness, because the sounds do not necessarily match the letters. Examples:
-"y" makes the long e sound (Tommy)
-"a" makes a sound other than long or short a (Isabella)
-the /oo/ sound as in"school", but spelled with different letters (Andrew)
In addition to the grayscale master for the game card, the packet includes:
-an example sheet with two possible name answers for each clue
-game instructions
-a "warm up" sheet which offers some suggested samples to practice with your students prior to playing the game
-(optional to read!) a one page "rationale"/explanation of my passion for reviewing, teaching, and assessing phonemic awareness not only in kindergarten and first grade, but with older students, too!

A fun and engaging activity to use only as an "icebreaker" game, this product can also be used as a valuable informal assessment of your students' phonemic awareness to help you begin to determine who might benefit from phonemic awareness instruction during guided reading. I would love comments and feedback from you after trying this product-I truly value my colleague's input as I continue to develop and create instructional materials. Thanks!
