Students pick a card, if they can read it, they can keep it. If not, they put it back. If they get a THUMP! card, they lose all their cards and start again! My small groups absolutely demand I make this game for all their spelling patterns.
Game can be played differently:
-Lose only 1/2/3/etc. cards when you get a Thump!
-Return the Thump card to the pile for infinite play, or keep out to end the game
-Use the cards as flash cards to practice spelling patterns.
-Adjust number of Thump cards to increase or decrease amount of card loss
