My school is helping students through small group intervention times (MTSS/RTI). The skill we are currently working on is r-controlled vowels.
The best way to cement the skill is through repetition. However, repetition can be boring. As a result, I created a few games to throw into our small group times.
The three games include:
*R-Controlled Race-- my students struggle with remembering which "r" vowel is needed when it comes to ir, er, and ur and this game practices that.
*Boo-Ya!! --Two versions to play, real and nonsense, for r-controlled word reading fluency.
*Showers and Flowers--Two versions to play, real and nonsense, for r-controlled word reading fluency with a different game set up from Boo-Ya!!
The words included are to work with students at an upper elementary level. Although they may be beneficial for students in primary grades as well. Examples of words included are: suburb, perfect, gerbil, murmur, glimmer, charm, forlorn, and report. As well as some less challenging words too.
