This package has a BOARD GAME and two sets of cards.
--- Set 1 - Beginning consonant blends with short vowels (25 cards of beginnings and 25 cards of endings)
--- Set 2 - Beginning blends (including CCC) with long vowels (45 cards of beginnings and 45 cards of endings)
- COMBINE THE SETS for lots of possibilities - see the WORD BANKS included
You can also combine these cards with Phase 1 cards for single consonant beginnings and cater for a wider range of learners. The inclusion of the WORD BANKS ensures the players are using real words although they are still practising blending with non-words. You can make this an independent activity with the WORD BANKS as students check on each other.
I use this game for those students who still have difficulty with phonemic awareness. I find the game format adds the fun element that a worksheet doesn't. They get that constant exposure that they need and keep coming back for more.
You can just choose the cards that you want your students to blend and you can add your own words to the WORD BANKS as I have left spaces for just that possibility (student names, for instance).
If you have students who are not progressing in reading it might be worth checking out my:
--- LITERACY INTERVENTION HANDBOOK ---
I have described the various barriers to reading progress and included diagnostic assessments that will help you cater for these students. I have a variety of games on my site that target various skill deficits. This is just one.
