Objective: Provide opportunities for young readers to be exposed to high-frequency words through play.

How to Prepare

  • Cut out each card (beginning on page 2) and put them in a pile - face down.
  • Cut out a headband for each player with a slot cut out (positioned on the forehead) to slide a card inside.  (I just used construction paper and tape.)
  • Give each student a note sheet to keep track of answers.
  • 2-4 Players

How to Play

  • Draw one card at a time and place it in your headband facing the other players. (Do not peek!)
  • Each player takes turns asking yes/no questions to determine the card that is on your forehead. (You receive 2 minutes and note sheet to keep track of answers.) *Teacher - I displayed example questions if they struggled thinking of something to ask.
    • Examples: (Poster to display these questions, on page 6)
      • Is my word a color?
      • Is my word a number?
      • Is my word an action?
      • Does my word tell me where?
      • etc.
  • Take turns until you guess your word!
