I have a couple of students who are are needing practise with short/long vowels and blends and digraphs so I've made up these dominoes games.
You play these games like dominoes - you match one side of the card to the opposite side of another card. For these games, students match words that have the same phonogram/word family - so they are rhyming words.
First up short vowel CVC and VCC words (circus theme):
Froggy short vowels with blends and digraphs:
Finally, Beach Froggy long vowel dominoes:
These games are great because students practise a whole heap of word families as well as review blends, digraphs, short and long vowels! My kiddos love dominoes games so I am always making more! Once they know how to play I can introduce new sets of cards with minimal explanation so I'm not wasting time explaining activities!
I will also use these cards for spelling practice - students can play the game with a partner and then take turns to read each other a card while the other records the word on mini-whiteboards. A great word work activity for the Daily 5!
