All 159 of the cards come in SIX different versions:
- All letters are missing (3 or 4 empty circles) so they build the entire word (ex: _ _ _ _ )
- No letters are missing for struggling students to just match letters (ex: g o a t )
- The vowel team is missing (ex: g _ _ t )
- All but the vowel team is missing (ex: _ o a _ )
- The first letter is missing (ex: _ o a t )
- The last letter is missing (ex: g o a _ )
These are SO much fun to practice vowel teams in a bunch of different skills (blending, initial sounds, segmenting sounds, identifying vowel sounds, etc.). I explain some of the ways to use word cards in this blog post.
