This resource is a fun way to encourage children to practice their phonics. They will need to be cut out, with the elephant stuck to the back of the word and then laminated. Once they're done once, you'll have them forever.
It consists of a selection of a selection of real and pseudo words, with a colourful background to keep them interested. You will need to print two copies of this resource in order to play the game. I played it in groups of 4:
*Give each child in the group an even amount of cards.
*Instruct them to leave them all in front of them (elephant facing up).
*The first child must place their first card down, sound it out/read it.
*The next child repeats etc until there is two of the same words placed one after the other.
*They all must race to say SNAP if two cards sitting on top of each other are the same word.
*The person to say it first, gets all of the cards in the pile and they begin again.
This resource can be used as an extension activity for early finishers, or as a revision tool at the end of the year
