Fun, engaging way for students to practice and learn short a word families. Students will enjoy multiple repetitions of short a word family words while playing Uno (or other games). Deck includes 9 short a word families; -ab, -ack, -ad, -ag, -am, -an, -and, -ap, at. Additionally, deck includes 12 "wild" cards and 12 "movement" cards. Movement cards allow students to get up and move around while playing game.
Simply print onto cardstock, laminate for durability. Make once, play for years!
Select which word families you want your students to work on and customize the deck for them. As your students' reading skills grow, build your deck.
Great activity for literacy centers and for parent volunteers or student mentors to play with students.
Primarily intended for K-2 students, although
younger students develop and strengthen their phonemic awareness. Older students struggling with reading will enjoy playing the games and not realize they are "working" or learning. Our school counselor used games in friendship groups. Kids worked on their reading skills in addition to learning how to cooperate, share and take turns.
I will be posting all short vowel word family games in addition to posting long vowel games and various combinations of other word families. Please watch for them if you enjoy this game!!
