Summary: I have had great success with this phonics game in my classrooms. There are plenty of choices in this phonics game to individualise it to suit your learners' needs. Feel free to print it out and use it.

Printable Magic e Phonics Game
a card game that make learning phonics fun


Preparation:

Print the cards, laminate them if possible and cut them out.

How to play:

1. Two, three or four players sit so they are facing each other.

2. Select a leader to shuffle the cards and give five flashcards to each member of the group, as well as themselves.

3. Place all the remaining flashcards in a pile face down in the centre. Next, flip a card off the top of this pile and place it face up next to the stack.

4. The leader reads the card by pronouncing the sound of the letters marked in red and then the word e.g. If the card is 'kite' the dealer says, ' i like in kite' If the card is ' name ' the leader says, ' a like in ' name '.

5. The children then look at their cards and take their turn moving to the left around the circle. If they have cards with the same sound as the one turned over by the dealer they can place one on top of the pile by saying ' a like in wake' or ' a like in space '.

6. If they do not have a match in their hand they pick up a card from the facedown pile. If the card they pick up is a match they can put it straight down, if not, they place it in their hand and the next player has a turn.

7. If the player does not have a match but has a CHANGE card in their hand they can change the sound being matched i.e. if say they had the cards ' rope, vote & stove ' they would place down their CHANGE card and say "I'd like to change it to ' o like in rope'". All the following players must match for 'o_e'.

8. The person who is the first to have no cards left is the winner.
