Switch It! is a card game developed by Pat Calfee which practices vowel sounds. Students compete to be the first player to place all of their cards down on the stack! Vowel patterns can be changed by using a Switch It! card. This game is perfect for small group instruction in a guided reading group. After students learn the game and have played it several times, it makes a great literacy center activity. Teachers can program the game by only using the vowel pattern cards that have been taught or are currently being reviewed. The bright, colorful pictures are perfect for extending vocabulary development.
