Try this fun way to reinforce the learning of literary terms while students stay engaged. 24 terms in 96 cards--make as many decks as you like!
Students will catch on quickly to this Go Fish style card game. It’s played much the same, but with a big twist. Students have to know the meaning of the literary terms in order to claim the card. And, if the person asking gets it wrong, the student being asked can claim the card for his own! This game is a fun and effective way to reinforce literary terms and vocabulary. This deck focuses on 24 terms.
What you get:
• Printable deck of 96 cards covering 24 terms. Print as many decks as you like, either in color or black and white. I print mine on cardstock and laminate them before cutting to make them last longer. I have 6 sets to satisfy 30 kids.
• Printing and cutting instructions
• 24 Terms/4 cards per term
• Student instruction/rule sheet with term definitions included for play.
• Decide how many decks you need. Up to 6 people can play per deck, but 4 is better as play goes faster.
• Print the decks on cardstock. I usually just print in grayscale, but you can also print in color. When printing, be sure to choose “fit to page” and not shrink. This will give you the largest cards. There are 7 sheets per deck. Print as sets, and keep the sets separate so you don’t have to sort them out later (not fun).
• Laminate if possible to make the decks last longer.
• Using a paper cutter, cut cards between the lines which leaves about 1/8th inch of white space around them.
• Bundle them into decks.
• Print out rule sheets for student use. I print mine on card stock and laminate as well. They print 1 sheet to 1 page. Make at least 2 sheets per table of play so all students are sure to have access to the term list.
