This a great review before post-testing for Step 2 (consonant blends, closed syllable exceptions, welded Sounds -nk & -ng)
Objective: Students earn coins for each word card they read. Each word has a different value depending on the phonemes in the word. Winner is the person with the most money at the end of the game!
Directions: Player picks a word card and determines its value by looking at the word value key. Player records the word on their recording sheet and writes down the value.
The word card "twists" is worth 5 ¢ for tw blend, 5¢ for st blend and 10 ¢ for suffix –s = 20¢ total
Teacher gives the student the coins (plastic or real) after each turn.
At the end of the game, students total up their values.
Bonus: Students are practicing their decoding skills while also reviewing the skills of identifying & counting coins!
