Directions: Students play in pairs or in small groups. Students deal out 8 cards to each player and place the rest of the cards upside down. The top card is turned over to begin the "discard" pile. Students must match the word pattern in the discard pile, taking turns. For example, if the discard is a "th" word, each player must put down a "th" word, unless they change the pattern with a Crazy 8 card. Each time a player puts down a word, they must say the word and then use it in a sentence. If the player does not have a word matching the pattern OR a Crazy 8 card, they take the next upside down card from the stack as a 'penalty card.' Game continues until one player "goes out."
