This product is designed to be used in a word study program, like Words Their Way. You can put this in a word study center or use it in small groups. This can also be used with the whole group. The focus of this game is the word families-ick, -ack, -ock, -uck. This is a word making game that will allow your kids practice with reading the words and distinguishing between real and nonsense word.
I suggest printing the word family cards on colored cardstock (red to signify the end of the word- red-stop!), laminating, and then cutting. I would print the letters and blends on a separate colored cardstock (green to signal the beginning of the word-green-go!), laminating and cutting. Kids will use two piles of cards. They take turns drawing a card from each pile putting the two cards together, reading it and deciding if it is a word or not. If they make a real word, they keep it. If they don’t, they can decide which card (the word family card or the letter card) to discard and draw once more. If they still don’t make a word on the second try, their turn is over and the next player draws a card. Play continues until all the word cards have been used. The winner is the one with the most real word.
Use a mailing envelope to house the cards. Print the directions and adhere them to a mailing envelope and then laminate the envelope for durability.
