The English language can be tricky when it comes to the spelling and pronunciation of words. What's mostly to blame? Vowels. They can be a complicated mess! This puzzle will help students recognize numerous vowel teams in words, help with correct spelling of these words, and recognize the sounds vowel teams make.
The goal in this puzzle is to form words with the consonants and vowel teams given. Words with single vowels will not work--the puzzle does not allow for it.
What you get in this purchase:
-the theory behind the vowel conspiracy
-consonants and vowel teams for creating words
-directions on set up and how to play
-challenge 'extras' for those who are up for it
This game feels like an addicting puzzle (I have only one more vowel team left!) all the while helping students recognize pronouncing unknown words is much easier after mastering the sounds of vowel teams. Students will become more conscientious of spelling, too, when they learn and recognize the vowel teams so often found in words they read and write often.
Have students play individually, in pairs or groups of three.
