PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Don't Eat the High Frequency Word!
When you were a kid, did you ever play the game "Don't Eat Pete?" If you didn't, no worries because you can live vicariously through your students. This is my educational take on the game I loved as a kid.

This product is easy to prep. All you need to do is print the game boards, laminate or put them in a sheet protector, and grab a couple packs of SMARTIES.

This game can be played in partners or small groups. I usually play with about 4-6 players. The game starts with one player going into the hall or another spot where he/she cannot hear the other players. While this student is gone, the other players will determine which word is the "chosen" word. Once the word has been chosen, a player retrieves the other player who is it. He/she comes back and begins removing candies from the game board.(I usually give the students ziploc bags or small cups to put their candies in.) As this student is taking off the candies, he/she is reading the words. If the student cannot read the word, he/she should leave the candy on the word and come back to it. This continues until this player has taken the candy off the "chosen" word. At that time, the other players in the group shout, "Don't eat the Word!" or "Don't eat the High Frequency Word!" At this point, the player's turn has ended. This player only gets to keep the candies that were taken before getting the "chosen" word. It is now another player's turn. This continues until all the players have had a turn or until time is up.

Helpful Hint: To ensure that your students are reading the word accurately, assign a parent to monitor the game or you can play the game with them.

My kiddos are obsessed with these games! It doesn't hurt that there's a little treat involved!
