One of the tasks teachers face is familiarizing students with spelling patterns in order for them to transfer the generalizations to unknown words.  This deck contains a set of pictures representing words ending with the /j/ sound, spelled  -ge and -dge.  Students will spell the words by transferring their knowledge of this spelling pattern.  This activity is aligned to the Reading Foundational Skill: Phonics and Word Recognition and the Language Standard: Conventions.  The cards may be used with partners or as a teacher-led activity with a group of students.
