This bundle of 5 card game is an engaging way for student to practice reading words with r-controlled vowel sounds (ar, er, ir, or, & ur), hard/soft c and g (“k”, “s”, “g” & “j”), vowel teams that can make 2 sounds (ea, ie, oo, & ow), the 3 sounds of –ed (“id”, “d” & “t”), and tricky suffixes that sound the same (-tion/sion/cian, -able/ible, -tial/cial, & –tious/cious). They also include opportunities to practice/review decoding with the 6 syllable types (bossy r, magic e, vowel teams, consonant-le, open, and closed)
A brief description of the various patterns/rules, examples, and directions are included, but UNI is an adaptation of the classic Uno card game, so kids catch on very quickly.

As an added bonus, these games help hone crucial executive skills such as sustained attention, auditory/visual working memory, controlling impulsive behaviors, organization, planning/prioritization, flexibility, and emotional control along with social skills like listening, taking turns, problem-solving, honesty, and sportsmanship. A range of words have also been specifically selected to help students develop a diverse vocabulary.
They are a great way to differentiate practice for all students within the general education classroom, and they are particularly helpful for students with dyslexia, ADHD/attention deficits, autism spectrum disorders, emotional/behavioral disorders, and other learning disabilities/differences.
These games are a fun, multi-sensory way to work on decoding (breaking down and sounding out) and encoding (spelling) words in a way that aligns with the Orton-Gillingham approach and phonics-based programs/methods such as Project Read, Alphabetic Phonics, IMSE, Herman, Spalding, Lindamood-Bell, Slingerland, Barton, Wilson, and others.
Thanks so much for your interest and efforts to meet each kiddo where they are with reading! I'm constantly working to create and improve upon games, so I eagerly welcome constructive feedback!
