Pop the Pig! An articulation and language game companion. This activity is designed to be used with the commercial game Pop the Pig! Just follow the rules that come with the original game, but with a twist.
Students are to try and fill the pig's tummy with 10 words (flash cards) that have the same designated vowel sound (eg. ee sound). They are given a time limit of 5 minutes in which to do so. Once they fill it with 10 words, they can complete the worksheet that goes with it.
You can change the game by picking different letter sounds, playing individually, in partners or as a group (make more board game templates as needed) or reducing the time limit.
I have included 6 different long e sounds – use them altogether or only use one or two sounds per game. Practice the words before feeding the pig.
