You can print it out as is, but it is designed to be printed out back to back with 10 different sets of HALLOWEEN graphics printing on the reverse side to keep the 10 sets separate.
**First run pages 1-25. (Word Cards, some cards with blank spaces on which you can write words that are specific for your class or your students’ names, and “Ghost BOOsters” Cards.)
**Next, place the word sheets, blank card sheets and Halloween Ghost BOOsters sheets face up and facing you in the printer paper tray.
**Now, print out pages 26-48 which contain 10 different types of backings (Halloween graphics) that will be printed on the reverse side of each sheet. This will help you keep the sets separated into 10 distinct sets. All 10 types of graphics will print out on the backs of the Ghost BOOsters cards, too, so that there are 3 Ghost BOOsters cards to match each set.
**The next 5 pages (49-53) are 10 different optional recording sheets with a Halloween graphic to match the backing on each set, upon which students can write the words they read.
**The final 2 pages contain 4 Halloween Ghost BOOsters Awards.
**Finally, just cut each word card sheet on the paper cutter into 12 square cards. If you don’t want to print back to back, you can print out the entire file at once and then glue the backings to the plain sides of the word cards OR just use the cards as one sided with plain backs, and don’t print the backings out at all.
Use as simple flashcards for individual students or for the activities below:
Game 1: Concentration/Memory – 10 different games - 24 cards (12 pairs) with matching backings in each set. Place the cards for any set face down in 4 rows of 6. Students play Memory or Concentration, turning over 2 cards at a time and keeping them if they match AND they can read the word and/or use it in a sentence. The game is over when all cards are gone. The winner is the student with the most cards. Keep cards that belong together in individual baggies. Students can record the words on the matching optional recording sheets. Halloween theme.
Game2: Ghost BOOsters! (Old Maid Style) – Place one Ghost BOOster card with a set of 24 cards. All the cards are dealt, face down. It doesn’t matter if some players end up with more cards than others. The players then sort their cards, keeping them hidden from all other players. Anyone holding pairs of matching cards, with the same word, should put them down face up. The player to the left of the dealer then fans his or her cards in his or her hand so he can see them all, although s/he keeps them hidden from the other players. (If you prefer, each student can be given a piece of construction paper folded the long way and set it up tent style to place the cards against.) S/he offers them to the player on his or her left, who cannot see them, but takes a random card from the fan. If the card s/he picks matches any he already s/he has, he puts down the pair. If not, he keeps it in his or her hand. Then, s/he, in turn, fans his cards and offers them to the player on the left. This continues until all the cards have been put down in pairs, except the Ghost BOOster Card (old maid card), which is left alone and cannot be paired. The person left holding the Ghost BOOster card loses the game. Players should be asked to read the cards and/or record them as they put down their pairs of matching cards, or they can record the words when the game is over.
Game 3: Ghost BOOsters!
Add one, two or three Ghost BOOsters cards to any set of Memory Cards. Be sure to select the Ghost BOOster cards with the same backing!! Shuffle cards, and place cards face down in a pile. Students take turns declaring how many cards they think they can draw and read before drawing a Ghost BOOster Card: 1 card, 2 cards or 3 cards. If the student draws a Ghost BOOster Card before his or her goal is met, s/he must return all cards to a discard pile. The winner is the student with the most cards when all word cards have been drawn.
Game 4: Roll and Read!
Select just the cards that a particular group of students needs to practice. Place cards face down in a pile. Students roll a die to see how many cards they can pick. Students keep each card that they correctly read. The game is over when all cards have been drawn. The winner is the student with the most cards.
Game 5: Follow The Path - Select the words that a group of students needs to practice. Students line up the cards face up as though they are on a path. This creates a “follow the path” type game. Each student has a game token. Students take turns rolling a number die, moving that number of spaces and reading the word that is on the space where the student lands. The winner is the player to first reach the end of the path.
