This package includes:
--- 6 GAME BOARDS (up to 6 players)
--- 1 MIXED SET OF CARDS (CVVC, CCVVC, CCCVVC - include only the cards you wish to use)
--- WORD BANK (for independent use)
This GAME format is similar to the traditional game except it requires students to blend sounds and match beginnings with endings. The WORD BANK is included so students can self-manage and there are blanks for you to add any more real words children discover. I have included CCC beginnings, but you can omit these cards if you wish.
I play this game with students who need lots of practice at phonemic awareness and it helps to develop their ability in that area with the WORD BANKS providing a visual to match the long sound of the vowels. The fun element keeps them playing over and over again, so there's no problem in keeping them motivated.
You can put it into a Literacy Centre for consolidation of long vowels, or send it home for Family Fun Time. I use it for intervention and you can just include the cards that need lots of practice if you want to.
