I have included a blank set of cards. In the other game boards you could make additional sets of cards for different groups of readers. For vocabulary review, all of the children are using the same vocabulary in the stories so that is not an option for this game board. The blank cards here are for missing pieces. I like to make 4 to 6 game boards depending on how many students are in a group. I make each set of cards on a different color of paper or cardstock. When I put out 6 vocabulary game boards at the same time each child has a different color set of cards so when it is clean up time it is easy to know which cards go with which game board if they get mixed up.
Because I laminate everything I use colored paper instead of cardstock if I am not worried about seeing through the paper because laminating makes it durable enough to last and colored paper is a higher quality paper and is cheaper than cardstock. In the spelling board game one child is holding up the card while the partner is spelling the word and you don’t want them to be able to see it. (That is not a problem in the Vocabulary Board Game)
I tape a sandwich ziplock baggy to the back of my game boards to hold the cards and the KEYS. I am not concerned with the children peeking at the KEYS while they are working. If there is an issue with individual children you will know and can address that with just that child and work out an arrangement with that individual and not the whole class.
I am always working with individuals and small groups while the rest of the students are doing centers and I teach them that centers are an independent activity. I do not want them constantly coming to me asking for KEYS to check their work or progress when they are capable of doing that by themselves even in kindergarten and certainly in second grade.
