SWAP - A Reading Game That Works!

A rainy day or sick day game...
The game is easy — it’s like UNO but with words, and you can buy different games for different skills (there are currently 35 different games). To start simple, we'll begin at the beginning. Game 1 focuses on the vowels so you get words like hot, cup, den, cub, sat, etc., and you have to match the different vowel sounds.  Game 2 focuses on ‘ch’, ’sh’ and ‘th’ sounds and includes words like fish, path, thin, crash, chin, chop, etc. The power of the game lies in the vital multi-sensory elements - seeing, saying, and hearing the words and letters.  The great thing is your child will be willing to learn without even knowing it! Above all - they are having fun while learning! CAUTION: very addictive.

The games are available to purchase here (the website is unimpressive and somewhat clumsy, but seems to be the only place to get them).
