-Why I created and how I prepare and use the game
-Common Core ELA Standards covered in this activity for
Grades 2, 3, and 4
-Practicing onset and rime helps student identify common chunks within words. This can help students decode new words when reading and spell words properly during writing.
-I have seen that even some students entering 3rd and 4th grade have still not met the prescribed level of mastery when it comes to word analysis skills.
-I have always felt that a good mix of materials and methods should be components of a balanced instructional program.
-That is why I use this activity for ALL my 4th grade students, as a station during literacy centers or a “go to” ELA game to play for academic fun.
-I have added the challenge of a letter “point” system to make the “game” more exciting to those who may find it easy to create rimes. Finding higher value words then becomes the focus!
Note: There are 40 Rime Cards (and each game only uses 6)! You can pick and choose the rimes based on current instruction, or let the kids play with all 40! The large number of rime cards allows for varied and unique repeated play!
