Rules to Prefix Change -
Print the cards,
laminate them if possible and cut them out.
Two, three or four players sit so they are facing each other.
2. Select a
dealer to shuffle the cards and give five cards to each member of the group, as
well as themselves.
3. Place all the remaining cards in a pile face down in
the centre. Next flip one card off the top of this pile and place it face up next
to the stack.
4. The dealer reads the card by pronouncing the sound of the
letters marked in red and then the word e.g. If the card is 'confuse' the dealer
says, ' con like in confuse' or if the card is ' dislike ' the dealer says, '
dis like in dislike '.
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 ' dis like in discover' or ' dis like in disappear '.
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 ' defuse, develop & delete
' they would place down their CHANGE card and say "I'd like to change it
to ' de like in develop'". All the following players must match for 'de'.
8. The person who is the first to have no cards left is the winner.
The power of this game as a learning tool comes from having the children say 'de
like in develop' when playing. Please ensure they keep doing it throughout the
