Flip It !

FLIP IT 1

A fun way to work on digraphs!      Practice visual and auditory              discrimination skills while trying to beat your opponent.

                                                                                         Discriminating: th vs. t

Two players compete to be the first to flip all 4 of their tiles. Each player is dealt a set of 4 tiles: 2 th tiles and 2 t tiles. There are 20 incomplete words in the deck of cards. The players take turns selecting a word card and flipping over the tile/s that correctly complete the word. Sometimes both a th and a t correctly complete a word, in which case 2 tiles can be flipped on one turn. And sometimes a player is forced to lose a turn because the remaining tile doesn’t work for their card. The first player with all 4 tiles flipped over is the winner. Flip It! is a very quick game which lends itself easily to short time slots or multiple rounds. It’s important to stress that the partners need to check each other on pronouncing the words and discerning whether or not they are real words in English.
