The spelling patterns of the /z/ sound - s, se, ss, z, z and zz - can be confusing. This small group or whole class activity provides practice in determining which medial or final spelling is correct for 100 /z/ words. 8 different bingo boards are included - more than one student can work with the same board since the choices they make will create different outcomes. The familiar bingo format makes this activity easy to play. When shown a word card with the /z/ spelling pattern missing, students sound the word out, determine which spelling is correct, then look at their bingo card for a space with that spelling, in the proper position for the word.
Two word lists are provided - alphabetical and by spelling pattern, and these can be printed in either color coded form or black and white.
