Product Description
ZAP is an engaging game that can easily be differentiated so that students of all levels can play.

ZAP games in the classroom

Zap games take a bit of prep to set up the first time, but after the initial set up it is super easy to swap out for new content.

I like to use Pringles containers to hold my game, but you can use any container you would like.


Kids can play independently, or in groups. I find 3-4 work best, but you can always have larger groups if you want.

Students will take turns drawing a card from the container. This is where you can differentiate as you see fit. For example, with this CVC set, you can have the following levels of differentiation:
Level 1- identify the beginning sound of the word
Level 2 - read the word, build the word (with playdoh, magnetic letters, etc)
Level 3 - identify a word that rhymes with the word

You can also make it more interactive by having kids record their answers on paper or a whiteboard.

If the child gets the card correct, they can keep it in their pile. If they get it incorrect, they put it back.

If you draw a ZAP card, you put all of your cards back into the container!

Game play continues for a set amount of time (I usually say 10-15 minutes) and then the kids count up their cards. Whoever has the most is the winner!
