Journeys First Grade- Unit 5 Spelling Words
This game is similar to hangman! Choose the amount of gumballs to put in the machine. I display the word list so students are reminded of the words. Shuffle and place word cards face down. Player 1 chooses a card (don’t let Player 2 see!) and is in charge of writing in and crossing off the letters. Player 1 tells Player 2 how many letters are in the word. Player 2 chooses a letter. If the letter is in the word, Player 1 writes it in the correct place in the letter boxes. If the letter is not in the word, Player 2 removes a gumball from the machine. Player 1 also crosses off each letter as it is guessed. Player 2 must guess the word before he/she runs out of gumballs! Players switch roles after each word!
