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 word puzzle will help students recognize numerous vowel teams in words, help with correct spelling, 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 for set up and how to play
-challenge 'extras' for those who are up for it
This game feels like an addicting puzzle all the while helping students master the sounds of vowel teams. There are no right or wrong words--students just formulate words one at a time. They'll 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.
