Print all pages on white cardstock or construction paper. Laminate for durability; then, cut out the cards. You’re ready to play!
This game is played best with only 2 players, but you can modify as needed. Deal out all of the green letter cards to both players (each will have 13 cards). The cards should be placed in front of each respective player FACE-UP so the letters are visible to all. Shuffle the purple CVC picture cards and orange KA-POW cards together. You can choose to keep all KA-POW cards in the game, or remove some so less “craziness” is involved. ☺ I find all 8 KA-POW cards are great because they keep things VERY interesting! Once all purple and orange cards are shuffled, they should be placed in a pile between both players. Game on!
The first player draws a card from the deck in the center. The card is then discarded in a pile next to the deck. Both players look at the card to determine the missing sound of the word/picture displayed. For instance, if the player flips over the “net” card (which shows “n _ t”), both players search their green letter cards for “e.” When “e” is found, the player that has it flips it face-down and play continues to the next player. If an orange KA-POW card is picked, the players must switch seats and play with their opponent’s cards! The game is over when one player’s green letter cards have ALL been flipped over, making him/her the winner! Play again and again until time runs out!
My students love this game because it’s so unpredictable! I bet yours will, too. ☺
