I use this slap game as a way for my students to practice identifying nouns as count / non-count or common / proper. Page 2 and 7 make a great handout or poster for quick reference to help students think through which category a noun belongs in. Page 3-4 and 8-9 are the noun cards which I cut up and keep in an envelope. Page 5-6 and 10-11 are the slap cards. Page 12 and 13 are response cards that can be used to make the game a whole class assessment activity. There are 60 nouns for each category, 120 total.
I place the slap cards on the board with magnet clips and give a fly swatter to each of two students. A third student then draws a card out of the envelope, reads the noun, and the first student to slap the correct card with the swatter is the winner. The “looser” rotates to become the reader and a new challenger comes forward. The cards are color coded as non-count nouns are in blue so the reader knows the correct answer without a key.
