Provide additional support for below grade level readers by playing the game during small group instruction. Students can copy each of the word segments onto paper or index cards and practice making words by physically moving them around. Afterward, challenge students to mix up the onsets and rimes they’ve written from various rounds of game play and see what new words they can create.

More advanced students can play the game independently or in pairs. Provide copies of the Mini Book Graphic Organizer and have students make books about a selected letter sounds onset, or rime, featuring a different word and its illustration on each page.
