A special request from our first grade team! This printable game is available in COLOR and Black/White. There are 24 word cards and 8 additional game cards included in this game activity. 4 blank word cards are also included so you can add words to this game if desired. 5 of the word cards include nonsense words (marked with a star).
Shuffle the cards and place face-down in the center of the group. Players pick a card and read the word. (For additional vocabulary practice, you can have them use them in a sentence or define/describe word). If you get the “Pig in the mud!” card you lose all your cards. If you get the “clean pig” card, you get to keep that card and take another turn. The player with the most cards at the end of the game session wins!
