This product contains 24 cards with words that have the long vowel o patterns (oa, ow, o_e) Whenever my kids are starting to learn a new pattern, I want to give them as many opportunities as possible to read words with that pattern. This game gives them the a fun way to practice reading those pattern words. I typically put this out during literacy center time. I can't take credit for the SLAP game. I have seen teachers use it with sight words and thought why not use it with pattern words, math equation, etc,!! If you enjoy this product, please leave feedback. Don't forget to follow my store!
Three students will set the cards face up. One student will be the “caller” and the other two students will be the “slappers.” The caller will read one of the words in the pile. The slappers will try to find it as quick as they can. Once they find the word, they slap it (gently, of course!). The person that slaps it first, gets it. Play until all cards in the pile are gone.
