Game 1: Collecting Cards: Students take turns pulling cards from a container. Students must read the word on the card pulled. They may then keep the card. If a SANTA or an ELF is pulled, students must place all of their cards back in the container.
The student with the most cards is the winner.
Game 2: Word Sort: Students take turns pulling cards from a container. Students must read the word on
the card pulled. They must then sort the card into the correct group and record the word on their paper. If a SANTA or an ELF is pulled, the students may go again.
Game 3: Digraph Dash: Place all of the cards upside down on a table. The students must walk to the table and choose a card. The students return to their desk and record the word on their paper. After the word is recorded, they may return to the table
to choose another card. The first person to record all of the words, is the winner!
Game 4: Write the Room: Place all of the cards around the room.
Students walk around and "hunt" for the words. When a word is found, students record it on their worksheet.
