PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Spoons: The Card Game

"Spoons" is a fun game targeting students' understanding of categories.

Included in this product is one set of cards with a color cue (for students that are just beginning to understand categories) and one set without a color cue (for more advanced students nearing generalization).

Setup:
• Arrange the spoons in the center of the table.

• Use 1 less spoon than the number of people playing (i.e. use 4 spoons for 5 players).

• The dealer shuffles and deals everyone 4 cards.

• The remaining cards are placed face-down in a stack in front of the dealer.

Game Play:
• The dealer takes a card from the stack and puts it into their hand.

• The dealer will place a card they don’t want in their hand face-down on the table and pass it to the player on the left.

• As the dealer draws a new card, the player will put the card the dealer just dropped in their hand and pass a face-down, unwanted card to the next player to the left.

• Game play is simultaneous. As the dealer draws, players will pickup and pass cards.

• The player to the right of the dealer will not pass to the dealer. They will instead discard face-down into a pile.

• Once someone has collected four-of-a-kind (a complete category of 4), they take a spoon from the center.

A player can either sneak a spoon (to avoid alerting the others) or outwardly grab a spoon. The player that does not get a spoon does not win. You can choose to play until there is one winner left, or just play it once during a therapy session.

I usually have all students name each card they have (vocabulary goals) and then they have to name the appropriate category.

This game includes: Body parts, Clothing, Food, Animals, Drinks, Furniture, School Supplies, Bugs/Insects, Plants, Weather Elements, Colors, People, and Transportation.
