This is one of my favorite games for drilling new vocabulary. Play it with kids once and they wouldn’t stop begging you for more!
1. Put everyone in groups of between 2 and 8 kids.
2. Give each group a set of cards.The cards are placed face down to form a pile.
3. The first player should take the card from a pile.
If this is a regular word card, the player has to name it or make a sentence using this word. If he does it correctly, he can keep the card.
If this is a "KABOOM" card the player has to give back one of his cards.
4. The winner is the player who has most cards when the deck runs out.
I hope your students get as excited about it as mine do.
