The perfect game for early readers!
It’s time for a feast, and words are on the menu! Print and laminate the set of word cards (includes sight words and nonsense words) and the Gobble and Garbage mats (one of each mat for each player). Place the word cards upside down in a pile. A player begins his or her turn by turning over the top word card and blending it out loud. The player must then decide if it is a real or make believe word. Real words are placed on the Gobble mat, but make believe words get “tossed” in the Garbage! The player with the biggest meal (the most real words) at the end of play wins.
This can also be played as a group with the player blending out loud, but the group working together to place words on a single set of Gobble/Garbage mats. Everyone wins!
