This is a fun game on distinguishing words with the VCC short i, VCC long i, VCC short o, and VCC long o spelling patterns. It fits with the Words Their Way sort 23 of Within Word Pattern.
I used the second edition yellow book to make this sort.
Connect Four is played like the traditional game with partners taking turns placing cards on the board, only students must match the card to the pattern on the board when laying it down. The first person to have four cards in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally is the winner.
The words in this game use some of the original words listed in the WTW word list. They also include new words that follow the same pattern in order to extend the sort and teach students to recognize the pattern instead of memorizing the words!
