This game is designed to be used with the spelling program "Words Their Way". The product contains domino cards that align with the Within Word Pattern sort 13.
I print the cards on the card stock color that matched the book the game aligns to (yellow for this one). Below is a description of how I have students play with the tiles. I'm sure there is a variety of ways you could use them besides mine!
*Have students divide the tiles evenly between how many players there are (usually 2-4)
*Decide on a student to play the first tile.
*Students then take turns looking for tiles in their hand that have one of the two spelling patterns on the first tile. If they have a match, I have them touch the two ends that match. No more tiles can touch those two ends.
*There should then be one end of the original tile that is unmatched as well as one end of the new tile that is unmatched. These are the two spelling patterns the next student is going to try to match.
*If a student can't make a match, then they have to skip a turn.
*Students continue to take turns until they have no more tiles left.
*The first student to play all their tiles wins!
