An elementary game from my aunt's previous classrooms to help students practice editing by finding the incorrectly spelled words in sentences.
Game is for 3-4 players plus a judge. Once you have printed, laminated, and cut the cards (and pre-taught the game), students can quickly use this game at any point.
Cards are stacked in a pile. First player turns over a card. All players spell the incorrect words in the sentence correctly. If the first player spells all the words correctly, s/he moves a space for each correct spelling plus a 3-spot bonus awarded by the judge. If the first player spells some correct, s/he moves a space for each correct spelling and the person to their left can steal the bonus (all the way around the circle if necessary). The judge determines who is right or wrong. If no one spells the list of words correctly, the judge gives a 3-space backward penalty. Play continues until someone reaches the end.
