Can be used as a GAME or Individual Work!
Find, read, and write the words. Then, add (record) your words and see who is the winner!
How to play:
This game is best played with 2-3 players.
Each student gets cards at random.
Recommendation: For 2 players, 15 cards each. For 3 players, 10 cards each.
Choose who goes first. Players will place one of
the cards they have on the corresponding word on the board.
The goal is to (if they have the word) place cards on the higher point row (1-6).
After they place the card on the box, they must WRITE the word on their sheet and also write down the point value (1-6).
Each student goes around taking their turn.
Whoever gets the most points wins. This is partly a game of strategy (students must be able to find the word that is on the highest row) and a game of chance!
There are also "Say, Spell, Save" cards. If a student has this card, they can place it on any space they wish. However, before they "save" the space, the must say and spell the word aloud. (Then they must record as usual).
Special Note: In the case when NO player has a word that needs to be filled on the board, they can take a card from the card pile. If the word the they get STILL is not one of the cards that need to be filled on the board, it's ok. They can put the card on top of an already-filled box of the same word. The players can do this repeatedly until all the board boxes are filled.
At the end of the game, students tally up their points, and whoever has the most points wins!
ALTERVATIVE WAY TO PLAY: Have ONE pile of cards and students take turns taking a card and putting it on the board.
2. INDIVIDUAL WORK
Find, read, and write the words. Then, add up the point value!
There is one pile of cards. The student takes a card and puts it on the corresponding box on the board. They then record the word on their sheet, as well as the point value of the box they put it in (this is important, as words are repeated, so they must write the correct point value (1-6)). The student takes more cards and repeats the process. They then tally up the point values of the words. Note: Since the words are repeated, they can get the same word twice, so they should leave a little room on the recording sheet to write more numbers.
1. Board : 3 options (full color, color background, black and white)
2. Cards: 2 options (color or black and white)
3. Recording Sheet (Individual and Group Version)
I recommend that you print, cut, and then laminate the board and cards for longer use and more durability.
Thank you and happy teaching!
