I recommend laminating the game cards so that you can have the materials prepped and ready for years to come! Rules included in the download as well as below.
*** Both Games are open ended and can be used with any game cards you want (math, science, spanish, etc). I have included 144 suffix game cards as well as a page of blank game cards so that you have a TON of replay potential targeting various skills. ENJOY!
Board Game #1: New York City Adventure: School is out and it is time to skate! Roll the die to move forward and skate to fun places in New York City. On each space, collect a card and solve in order to visit the place pictured. The player to visit to the most places wins!
Board Game #2: Charmed Life: You’ve always wanted a charm bracelet - a piece of jewelry that you can make perfectly yours. Today your parents made your day by bringing you to the shop to pick out a charm bracelets with all your favorite charms, but you’ve got to earn them! Start at the plain bracelet and make it your own by rolling the die. On each spot you land, pick a game card and solve in order to pick a charm to add to your wrist. Watch out for breakable pieces, and aim for the design bonuses. The player with the most charmed bracelet wins!
*Recommended for 2-5 players. Great for centers!!
- erasable marker (players share this marker when it is their turn and they need to circle the charm they have landed on and earned)!
- die (if you would like the game to last longer, I recommend using/making a die with smaller numbers 1,2,3,4).
- pawns for each player
- game cards (Suffix Game Cards. I have provided 144 game cards, so that you can play this game any number of times targeting another suffix skill such as adding suffix -ing to magic e, adding suffix -ed to long vowel words, etc).
Print out the 2-page game board and paste into a file folder. Print score cards and laminate (print additional copies if you wish to have more than 2 players). Print game cards (writing words with suffix -ed and -ing). I suggest either printing the game cards on card stock or printing and laminating so that they last a while. Player 1 rolls the die, moves that number of spaces ahead and lands on a charm. He must draw a game card and apply the spelling rule to add the suffix to the word given (student writes the new word on the line provided on the card). Once the student has applied the suffix rule and has written the word on his score card, he can collect a charm from his score card. Player 2 takes his turn and the game continues. There are several spaces that require the player to either lose charms or gain charms. When all the players have made it to the finish space (the completed charm bracelet), have players count their score cards to see who won the game. As a final assessment, you can have each student read any given number of game cards from their hand. After the game is over, have students erase their score cards and put the game cards in a stack so the game is ready for the next group of players. This game has a ton of replay potential.
