Are you looking for a fun way to help your students practice reading sentences? Shiver Me Timbers! is a pirate-themed card game that will do just that. Easy to prep (just print, laminate and slice up the cards!) and simple to play it will be a perfect addition to your reading groups, Literacy centers or as a fast finishers' choice.
Children take turns to choose a card, searching for pirate's treasure! If they find some, they read the sentence and keep the card. If they find a pirate who wants his treasure back, they must return one (or all) of their cards to the pile. Optional pirate ship cards can be included to act as 'freebies' to trade when a pirate card is drawn. The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner!
Sentences have been based on the Dolch Pre-Primer, Primer and First Grade word lists (with a few easily decodable words included) to ensure that they can be successfully read by your little learners. Please see the preview file for a complete list of sentences in this game.
Also available as part of the reading fluency card game BUNDLE!
