This game can be played to practice READING OR SPELLING tricky words with silent letters or unusual spellings. Any of the 3 game boards (weird dogs, weird cats, weird pets) can be used with any combination of the 133 word cards. Word selections include kn-, wr-, gn-, gh-, ph- & -ph as f, -gh as f, -mn, -mb, -lf, -lk,-lm, -bt and -gn words. Blank cards are included for you to add your own words. Bonus turns, “No pets allowed” (miss a turn) and “Pet of the week” (double the spaces earned) add excitement to the game. A recording sheet which can be used for the reading or spelling variation is included.
