Crazy Words is a colorful phonics game that practices decoding strategies and blending sounds using nonsense words. Players try to match color or letter to get rid of their cards while decoding nonsense words with CVC patterns, digraphs, blends, suffix s, and welded sounds. A set of editable cards is included.
Players practice identifying letters and blending sounds to decode words. Cards may also be used as flashcards or as a matching game activity. This game provides differentiated instruction for tutoring sessions, general classroom use, homeschool, and special education.
Word cards were created using EZRead Kids Font made for dyslexic readers and students that learn differently. This game can be used as extra practice for students using any Orton Gillingham-based reading program.

What others say⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
My daughter was so behind from Covid. We used this game at home with her brothers to help her build her fluency. She tested on benchmark at the end of the year in nonsense word fluency. This definitely helped make school remediation seem like fun instead of punishment.
