PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is an exciting twist on the "Rock, Paper, Scissors" hand game. It covers CVC short a words and there are 8 pages including cards with images and those without. A "cheat sheet' symbols key is also included. This game works wonderfully as a partner activity or literacy station. It works well as a tutoring or enrichment activity too! I also like to use it during guided reading lessons by making multiple copies of the playing cards and partnering up my students for play. This is a fun way to practice blending short a words and is a favorite with my class! (They love ALL of the Rock, Paper, Scissors games!)
*All images are original artwork.*
CCSS alignment: RF.K.3a

Directions:
Deal out all cards into two piles face down (one pile for each player). Both players draw a card from their pile. Each player must blend the letters together to read the short a word. Once answers have been given, players lay their cards down to see who has won the round. Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock. If a WILD card is drawn, the player may choose rock, paper, or scissors for that round, before the other player lays his/her card down. If it is a tie, both cards are returned to the middle of each player's stack. The winner of the round sets both cards into a separate pile of his/her winnings. Play continues until all cards are gone. The player with the greater number of cards in his/her winnings pile at the end of the game is the overall winner.

More short vowel words sets coming soon!
