PREFIXES and SUFFIXES - SWITCHEROO CARD GAME - Phase 6 - 10 games

PREFIXES and SUFFIXES - SWITCHEROO CARD GAME - Phase 6 - 10 games

This package contains 10 games plus directions on how to play SWITCHEROO. This is a game I play regularly in my intervention sessions and kids love it. I use it to target various skills and that's why I have developed so many SWITCHEROO games. I usually have a game of some sort to match the skill deficits I identify. This game has a strategy element that is so much fun that it has them asking for more. I have a free Phase 6 game for you to try. It has prefixes that mean 'not'. There is a word list included for all 10 games in this package. If it suits you, come back and get the package. I also have SWITCHEROO games from Phase 1 to Phase 6 in various bundles to cater for differentiation and school-wide intervention programs.
