Oh Pumpkin! is a fun sight word recognition game, using the first 100 Fry words, that students love! It is great to play in fall and appeals to younger and older children.
Students pick out one card from a fun container (I use a plastic pumpkin or a Halloween bucket) and read the word. If they get it correct they keep the card. If a student pulls “Oh Pumpkin!" they must put all of their cards back in the containert. If they pull "Trade with another player", then he/she must choose another player to trade cards with The winner is the student with the most cards at the end of the game time.
You can also use the cards as flash cards and to play matching or Go Fish by printing out 2 sets of cards.
I have used this game in my classroom for the past few years with much success. The students love it and often request to play all year long.
