Spin to Win! ~ Fun Partner Word Game ~ No Fuss ~ No Prep!
Do your students need some extra word work practice? Or do you need another activity to leave for a substitute teacher? This word game may be just what you are looking for!
This partner game includes 10 game sheets which provide lots of fun with words. There are 36 words on each game sheet. The words are related to the following topics: school, sports, plants, baking, movies, hiking, exercise, sailing, weather, and fun in the sun.
Materials Needed: 1 game sheet per pair, 1 paperclip, 2 different colored crayons (one crayon per player), and 1 pencil
Directions: Using a paperclip and pencil, Player 1 spins the letter and number spinners. Player 1 locates that coordinate on the grid and reads the word in that box. If read correctly, the player colors the box. If read incorrectly, the player loses a turn. (If the box has already been colored in, the player loses a turn.) Player 2 continues in the same manner. Players take turns until all of the boxes are filled in. The winner is the player who has the most boxes at the end of the game.
This game makes a great, no-fuss literacy center and is a quick and easy game to leave for substitutes, too!
Thanks for looking!
