Students will have fun forming words that contain -ng or -nk. Use this product with any phonics program. Note: The Barton program uses the term "units" for letter combinations that contain -ng or -nk. This terminology does not appear on the spinners or answers sheets, so any students can use this product.
If you use the Barton Orton-Gillingham program, use this product in conjunction with Barton Level 3 Lesson 8 when students are introduced to units -ang, -ing, -ong, -ung, -ank, -ink, -onk, -unk. Help your students remember the units and achieve fluency when reading words that contain them.
While using the activity/games, students repeatedly read the real and nonsense words they form. Students use an onset spinner and a unit (rime) spinner. They spin a paperclip on top of each spinner to form a word. Students decide whether the words are real or nonsense and write them in the correct place on their answer sheets. Students can complete this activity independently in a literacy center, or they can play one of the two game versions with other students. An answer key is also included.
