OOPS! is a fun, low-prep game your students can play to practice their syllable type skills. All you need is the printable paper slips to be cut up, and copies of the recording sheet. This game is great for centers or for free-choice time, and kids absolutely love it!
There is also a PowerPoint file included so that you can make your own version of the game. Instructions on how to use it are included.
HOW TO PLAY:
Put all paper slips in a bucket with the apple facing the top (the end with the words should be touching the bottom). Without looking, draw a stick from the bucket and read the word out loud. On your recording sheet, write the word under the number on its slip and break the word up into two or three syllables. Then, write what syllable type each syllable is. If it is done correctly, keep the stick!
If you pull a slip out that says “OOPS!”, all of your slips go back in the bucket! Whoever has the most slips at the end of the game wins!
