I'm sure you have heard of "Don't Eat Pete!", if not, you are in for a treat. Popcorn Word Review.
Great for a small group activity. Reinforces the 108 (plus four that I added) Popcorn Words that pop up everyday in our reading.
The 112 words are divided progressively onto 4 game boards. The first 28 words on board #1, words 29-56 on board #2 and so on.
Print game boards on card stock and laminate. Choose one game board to play. Provide small pieces of food to put on each square ie. M&M's, Skittle, goldfish, smarties, cereal, etc.
One game board per small group
Small pieces of food ie. M&M's, Skittles, goldfish, or cereal
Put a Skittle on each square. Choose one person to be the player and leave the room. The group will then choose one word to be "Pete" and keep it a secret. The player who left will return and begin to read the words, one at a time in any order. If they read the word correctly the group stays quiet and the player gets to take the Skittle off. If they read the word that was secretly chosen to be "Pete" the group says (with expression, not volume), "Don't Eat Pete!" before the player reaches the Skittle. The game is over, and a new player and "Pete" is chosen. Play until everyone has a turn to be the player.
We hope you find this activity fun, educational, helpful, and hip!
