This center includes 19 pages of skill cards including pre-primer sight words, capital letters, lowercase letters, combined capital and lowercase letters, and numbers 1-30. All together there are 152 skill cards to mix, match, and choose from!
This product is also low prep. Print, laminate, and cut and you are good to go! Even better, you can print the vibrant colored images, or print in black and white to save your ink!
Use the various skill cards to play two different games:
Game 1- Santa in a bag
Place the skill cards and a few Santa cards (depending on the number of kids playing you may want more/less) in a paper bag. Students sit in a circle and pass the bag around. On their turn they reach in and choose a card, they have to read the sight word, letter, or number that they choose. (or letter sound) If a student draws a Santa card they have to stand up and “HO, HO, HO” in their best Santa voice. Great for small groups or whole group review.
Game 2 - Sneaky Santa
Place the skill cards in a pocket chart, table top pocket chart, or on a flat surface. Hide a few Santa cards behind/under skill cards while students aren’t looking. Students take turns guessing where Santa is hiding and then checking behind/under the card. If a student finds a Santa they get to keep it until all Santa cards are found. After all are found you can hide them and play again.
My students absolutely LOVE playing Santa in a Bag and Sneaky Santa. This product is a great way to review many different skills through fun, hands on, silly, and interactive games.
