Words to Know
This game is meant for a small group.
Make a copy of cards for each small group
Cut out the group of cards and put them in a basket
Each student should take turns drawing a card out of the basket
If they can read the card out loud correctly to the group they can keep the card. If they do not read the card correctly they have to put it back
If they draw the card “Bam!” they have to put all their cards back
Whoever has the most cards at the end of the game wins
Cut 1 set of laminated cards for each group. I provided color and black and white options; copy the black and white cards on colorful paper.
Get 1 basket for each group.
As you move from lesson to lesson you can include the words from previous lessons or do one set of words at a time.
I keep this game out for students to play when they are finished with their work.
