And don't miss SPINGOES
- OUR COMPREHENSIVE ONSET/RIME SPINNER BINGO GAME RESOURCE!
Initial Blends develops spelling of 12 common
initial blends (-l blends, -r blends + st and sp) through a
simple, fast-moving onset and rime game using 55 cards and 2
dice. Various playing options allow for very competitive, quick-thinking
play, or straightforward turn-taking rules that give no player any
advantage over the other(s). Each vowel sound has its own colour,
and long vowels have a different colour background to eliminate
confusion. Typical words formed: STOP CLIP PROP CLAP PLUM SLACK
FLICK SLEEP STAIN etc
Wordbuilder (age 7+)
gives students valuable
practice with spelling words that include whole-word
CHUNKS. Research has shown that many dyslexic students find that the
recognition of words within words is a valuable strategy for remembering
spelling. This game creates hundreds of options with 24 of the most
common whole words that can also be rime chunks in other
words, in a unique card game- with a touch of strategy- that is great
fun to play.
