purchased “FLASH and MATCH for /Z/ --- initial, medial, final. There are 32 /z/ flash cards and a /z/ game consisting of 31 cards (with the same images as on the flash cards). The flash card drills should be done before attempting the matching game for two reasons. It’s important to know how to say the /z/ words correctly before playing a game, AND it teaches the student the vocabulary first.
This packet includes:
This bundle includes 32 /Z/ Flash Cards (2.5” x 3.5”) Initial (10 cards), Medial (11), Final(11)
Matching game consisting of 31 game cards (4 3/4" x 4 3/4") each containing six /z/ word images. There are
31 different images among all the cards, all of which are also on the Flash Cards.
You will need:
Standard White Cardstock Paper, 8.5” x 11”.
Print the activity pages.
Laminate the activity pages.
Cut the flash cards.
Cut the Game cards.
Use the flash cards for drills, as you normally do for articulation. You may also print out the flash cards twice to play a Finding Pairs game. Finding pairs requires putting paired cards face down, randomly and having students take turns flipping cards trying to find a match.
All 31 cards have one matching object, no matter which two cards you choose. It’s a mathematical formula that I used to accomplish this. So, you’ll notice cards 1 and 2 have a common object which is “hose.”
Cards 5 and 9 have a common object and that is “nose.” Pick any two cards, you’ll find a match.
To play the game,
Place all cards, face down, in a pile.
One player takes the top two cards and places them face up on the table. (Remind them to keep hands off the cards, which covers the images.)
At that moment, all players look at the two cards for a match. The first one to say the matching word wins those two cards.
Then, the next player flips the next two cards, and so on.
When there is only one card left, the game ends and the player with the most cards win.
Options: Have student make a sentence for the word.
Have student think of a rhyming word.
For students with category goals, have them think of the category, 3 attributes, what goes with it.
