I created this packet to make it easy for my students to learn to read r-controlled syllable type words. There are 6 syllable types, and r-controlled is one of the six types. Spelling r-controlled words require visual memory and experience, but when reading, there are a few insights that can help students to better read r-controlled syllable words. The game boards are designed in a systematic way to make it a easier for students to learn the 4 sounds--/air/, /ar/, /ir/ /or/--to the 5 spellings of r-controlled words. This way they are better informed as readers, and the guessing begins to disappear.
Game Directions: Students are to roll a die. Whatever number the die lands on is the column from which the student is to read a word. They can X out their words or place chips on them as they read. The first one to read all their words win.
