PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

-ge and -dge spelling target game

I always try to find new ways to make phonics multisensory. I started using this target game to help students practice the spelling for sounds that appear very similar or even the same.

Preparing the Words:

I cut out all the cards for the words I’m going to use, or I just pick a sheet to use. I verbally state a word. Depending on the student, I might give them the card (or sheet) to look at because a lot of my students are visual learners. You can have students give the answer verbally or have them write in the missing letters. After the student decides which spelling they choose, they can proceed to hitting the appropriate target. I mark on my checklist if they answer correctly or incorrectly. Often I will ask students to state the rule as well. Why did they choose that spelling. How do they know it’s right?

Placing Targets:

I put the targets on the wall or outside on trees and the students use different means to hit the targets. Things I’ve used have been throwing bean bags, water balloons, squirt guns, and even a laser pointer. If I’m using this in the winter, I’ll laminate the targets and have
students throw snowballs to hit them. Use whatever creative materials you have that would be appropriate for your location and students. I like to get my students outside, but you can use them inside as well. I have even put the targets on the floor and had students stomp on them. They love mixing up the ways I have them hit the targets. You can use different sizes of targets depending on your needs.

Materials Included:

1. large, medium and small targets
2. spelling rules sheet for reference
3. 4 pages of words that can be cut out and used as cards or kept together as a sheet. The words have blanks for the /j/ sound. There are 15 words per page so 60 total words. The first 3 pages include one syllable words with the /j/ sound at the end of the word. The 4th page is an advanced page including words with two or more syllables.
4. checklists for the teacher to record which words the student answers correctly or
incorrectly
