Phoneme Chain can be played at any time of the week. You don’t need any resources to play – just a willing class of participants!
Aim of the game
Students make a word chain by adding words that start with the final phoneme of the previous word.
What you’ll need
Students sitting in a circle.
How to play
If students get stuck (particularly in the younger years), give them a clue for a word that would work, or don’t be afraid to make a short chain and start again with a new word.
