This is my FAVORITE test prep game to use in my classroom. I have been using it for the past four years, and my kiddos LOVE It (they don't even know they're test prepping!). Great for use in teacher led centers at first, but once the kiddos get used to it, they can play on their own!
I recommend that you print this on card-stock and laminate before putting in the hands of your students so they can be re-used year after year!
How to Play:
Place sight words in cup/container as they are introduced, including 3-4 BANG! cards.
Students play in teams of 2-4.
One student picks a card.
They are expected to give the definition of the vocabulary word they have chosen.
Another student (or teacher) checks the student's answer.
If the student gets correctly says the word, they get to keep the card. If not, they put the card back in the cup.
If the student chooses BANG! then they put all of their cards back into the cup.
Play continues until all cards have been correctly said.
