This simplified, literacy version of the game UNO includes 157 kindergarten high frequency words on game cards in four colors, 18 skip cards, and 21 wild cards. Cards may be used as one deck or split up for smaller groups/differentiation. The included words compose the 14 kindergarten sight words lists at my school.
To play the game: Deal 7 game cards to each participating student. Place the remainder of the cards in an overturned deck in the center of the playing area. Turn over the top card. Players take turns laying cards down from their hands. Cards must be played on like colors. If a player does not have the color of card at the top of the pile, he/she must pick one card from the deck. When a player lays a card down, he/she must read the word on his/her card. Skip cards may be used in place of a colored card to skip the next player's turn. Wild cards may be used as a player's turn to change the color to a more preferred card color. The object of the game is to get rid of all cards in your hand first!
