Instructions for teachers
Decide which pack of cards to use, thinking about which will have the right level of difficulty for your students. (They are given in order of decreasing difficulty below).
Cut up one pack of cards per class or group of two to four students. The dominoes cards need to have two parts, so don’t cut down the middle of the cards. After students work together to put the cards in order, they can:
- Mix the cards up in front of their partner and see if they can put them back in order
- Shuffle up all the cards and race to put them together in order
- Play an actual game of dominoes (probably better with two or more packs of cards mixed up together)
- Test each other orally on the word endings
- Do the activity again with a more difficult pack of cards from below
