We love to play games with my flash cards. There are so many different ways you can do this. We took the cards we made in the CVC Word Sorting by Vowel and made a fun game with them.
This makes another fun and easy way to review the words that you are working on.
This is a simple and easy way to review the words you are working on. I use words that have similar endings to make it fun and easy for when you are starting out. We used the word family endings: -at, -et, -it, -ot, & -ut. We had made some flash cards in the sorting by vowel activity. It was simple and easy to pull out 4 cards from each word family and make this game. Plus she really liked to use the cards that she made.
I like to keep the number of cards simple for matching. I don’t want to overwhelm her while she reviewing the words.
What you need for this activity: CVC Word Family Color by Letter Cards for -at, -et, -it, -ot, & -ut colored or not colored.
We put all the cards into a grid and she starts turning two cards over to see if they rhyme. Every time she turned over a cards I have her say the cards she has turned over.
Once she has a match we review the words starting and ending sounds on the card. The color code does make it easier when you are starting out to find the rhyming words.
While playing if she is having a problem with sounding out a word. I have her pick it up and sound out each letter. Then we put the sounds all together.
At the end we review the 5 sets of each of the word families. This is an easy game that can be changed up for any set of words CVC or CVCC word family words. This is about having fun!
