Spoons is the most requested game in my classroom. Two versions will help you to differentiate and help your students to recognize parts of speech in context! The Spoon Score Cards will help to make this game more inclusive than the traditional version.
What is included:
8 sets of 4 cards. One category card and 3 examples.
8 sets of 4 cards: One category card, one definition card, one example and one example in a sentence.
Answer keys-can be made by printing as multiples (4 to a page)
2 sets of 4 Wild Cards
Spoon score cards (double-sided copying and lamination recommended)
Score board for 2 players
Time score board for 1-4 players
Suggestions for other uses for playing cards.
Ideal for 4-5 players, but can be played with more. The goal of Spoons is to complete a set of cards before one’s peers. Once a player has all the cards belonging to that set, they SNEAKILY take a spoon and continue playing as if nothing has happened. Once the first spoon is taken, other perceptive players may take a spoon without having a complete set themselves. There are not enough spoons per player and so the goal is to not be the player left without a spoon.
Put out one MORE set than the number of players, perhaps adding 2-3 extra sets to make it more complicated. Put out one LESS spoon than the number of players. Separate out score cards and answer cards.
