This is the Mega Bundle of all of the sets of my popular Monster Match games! This bundle includes 91 different multiple meaning words for students to practice in 7 different games! I created these games because my students needed more practice with this important common core skill, but I didn't want to bore them with worksheets and practice pages. With less and less time to model games and activities, I knew whatever I created had to be easy to play, and the game play had to be the same, even if I changed the words. That's where these cards come in. The game is played the same way for each set; the only thing that changes are the multiple meaning words the students are exposed to! This has eliminated the need for me to model before each game. My students know how to play "Monster Match", and I just swap versions of the game in and out between my different groups! This bundle has a savings of $6.00 if you buy it rather than buying the sets separately! That's like getting 2 games FREE!
This bundle could be used for a minimum of 7 days-one for each game-but I used each game for several days so that students could truly learn and practice the meanings of the words during centers. Our district has monthly focus skills, one of which is multiple meaning words. This bundle lasted an average of an entire month's worth of activity centers (some groups finished earlier), and made planning for centers a snap! Games are ready to assemble after printing! I recommend putting them in manila folders or the large yellow file envelopes and gluing the title page of each game on one side, and the directions for the game on the other.
Have students in your class that need a challenge? Simply mix 2 sets of the game together! The color-coded monsters make sorting them back into their individual sets a breeze!
Other ideas include (but are not limited to!):
*printing sets off and sending them home with students to play the games at home for practice
*only give students one half of the matches and challenging them to come up with their own definitions or sentences
*using a set as a cut/glue assessment rather than a paper/pencil quiz
