Academic Vocabulary Game: Academic Vocabulary Oh Boogers! Game is a great way for students to review academic vocabulary such as analyze, cite, formulate, infer, and summarize. It can easily be used for small groups of struggling students or as enrichment for early finishers. This literacy center activity works for grades 3, 4, 5 or 6. Perfect for the ELL or EC classroom.
2 sets of 20 cards and answer key
Put all of the cards in a pile and take turns picking them up. When you pick up a card you have to give the right answer. If you get the right answer, you get to keep your card. (Check the answer card if you are not sure.) If you get it wrong, you have to put your card back. If you pull an “Oh Boogers!” card, you have to put all of your cards back in the pile.
Note to teachers:
There are two sets of cards for this activity. If you want to use the vocabulary cards in the game, then the definition cards become the answer key to use. If you want to use the definition cards in the game, then the vocabulary cards become the answer key. I use this in a literacy center and place the answer key in a plastic sleeve for students to refer to if needed.
***I recommend laminating cards on card stock ***
