Are your students able to apply decoding rules to short words, but falter when they reach bigger words?

This bright summery game, perfect for the end of the year or summer school, gives kids practice chunking multisyllabic words in a fun way! Each card has a multisyllabic word with slight spaces between syllables or other small word parts to help students build confidence and skills decoding longer words. Practice using the "Chunky Monkey" strategy with this pack, featuring the prefixes in-, sub-, an-, im-, and de-.

Students take turns drawing cards. If they read the card correctly, they get to keep it! They have to watch out, though-- they may find a "Sunburned" card that makes them give some cards back, or a "Keepin' Cool" card that gives them extra cards from the pile! The surprise of the Sunburned and Keepin' Cool cards add some suspense to the game and the students LOVE playing it in a center!

This version includes 8 cards featuring each prefix listed above, as well as "Sunburned!" and "Keepin' Cool!" cards to spice up the game!
