students will really enjoy this fantastic phonics game. It'll turn reading
activities into a lot of fun. They will especially like modifying the game so
they use their own actions and sayings.

Soft Sound Slap
Print the gamecards,
laminate them if possible and cut them out.
Two or three players sit facing each other.
2. A leader shuffles the cards
well and gives out the whole pack evenly amongst the players with the gamecards
3. No one may look at their cards and the object of the game is
to 'win' all the gamecards.
4. The player to the left of the leader begins
by flipping their top card into the centre of the players and reads the word aloud
to the group. The players continue around the group doing the same.
the upturned card is:
a) the giant - the children must say 'Fi-fi-fo-fum' loudly and then slap
their hands on the pile of cards
b) the circus - the children must
put their thumbs in their ears and wiggle their fingers and then slap their hands
on the cards.
c) the 'Soft C Rule ' - the children must salute each
other and read the rule aloud, then slap their hands on the pile.
the 'Soft G Rule ' - the children must salute each other and read the rule aloud,
then slap their hand on the pile.
You can change the gamecards that signal the grab and have the children make up
the actions and what is said. In this way you can also make the game as quiet
or as noisy as you like.
The child with their hand on top of the pile wins all the cards.
7. The winner
of the whole game is the person who wins all the cards.
