Jack Berckemeyer taught us this at a NELMS conference. Kate quickly made up a bunch of sets for both of our classrooms.
Each group of students gets a set of letter cards. B, D, F, O, P, R, A, S, T, L, H, N; ambiguous M/E/W ; an ambiguous U/C (If the students figure out that they can flip an ‘ambiguous letter card’ to create a new letter, they may.) Then you give the students a task, and they get started.
What a great way to review terms for a test, generate word banks, practice with morphemes, etc.!
