This is a fun, fast paced game that can be played during centers or free time to help students learn their Dolch 1st grade words!
Look for this same game for pre-primer and primer words in my store!
To play the game, each student draws a card and reads the word on his card. If he gets it right, he gets to keep the card. If he gets it wrong, he places it in a discard pile. If a student draws a zap card, he has to place all his cards in the discard pile. If a student draws a pow card, he gets to take the discard pile and try to read each word in the pile. He gets to keep the cards he can read. The rest of the cards go back into the discard pile and the game continues. The game ends when all the cards in the main pile are used. The winner is the student with the most cards.
