Phonics Mania, Flash Freebie & a Giveaway

As an intervention specialist, I review concepts with my students that were previously done in a whole class setting.  Games are a great way to reinforce concepts.   Not only are the students practicing what they have learned but they have fun doing it!! (and so do I) 

One game that I totally love to use is Whizzle Phonics 123 and 456.  Whizzle Phonics is actually 6 different decks of cards that target a specific skill or concept like the silent E or open syllables.  The best part is that the kids already know how to play because it is very similar to UNO.  Each vowel is its own color and students have to match the vowel or beginning or ending sound of a word.

Since I like the game so much I decided to make my own version because there are phonics concepts I would like to target but they are not covered in the decks that I have already like blends and digraphs with short vowels.  I finally finished BLEND AND DIGRAPH PHONICS MANIA yesterday!!  My first finished product of the summer!!  Whoo Whoo!

Here is a sneak peak:

I am going to have it available for FREE until 7pm tonight if you would like to snag it after that if will cost $3.00.  I hope you enjoy.  I would love to know your thoughts!

Also if you are a total clip art junkie like me then you will want to check out the giveaway going on at First Grade in the Foxwell Forest until June 7th.  Fonts, clip art, and borders really could a girl ask for more??  Click below to head on over to the giveaway!!

May luck be with you:)
