The materials I always love most (and use the most) are the ones that are versatile and can be used all year round.
This 10 page packet can be used like any deck of cards. On each card these is a picture and a word containing either S or Z in initial, medial, or final position.
Play any card game. I love playing War with these cards!
Deal out all the cards, so that each player has 26 (or less if you’re playing with more players). Players do not look at their cards, but keep them in a pile face down. The object of the game is to win all the cards (or have the most when time runs out).
Both players turn their top card face up and put them on the table. Whoever turned the higher card takes both cards and reads both words aloud. Then, they add them (face down) to the bottom of their pile. Then both players turn up their next card and so on.
If the turned up cards are equal there is a war. The tied cards stay on the table and both players play the next card of their pile face down and then another card face-up. Whoever has the higher of the new face-up cards wins the war and adds all six cards face-down to the bottom of their pile (reading all six words on the cards).
If this sounds like something that you could use in your speech room, you can find them in my TpT Store here. Stay posted for other sounds!
