This is a HFW game for Treasures Unit Smart Start.
There are multiple ways to play the game, but my students always play this way:
1. Pick a card, if they can read it they keep it. If not, they put it back.
2. Keep taking cards until you get the special card--Pow!, Zap!, etc.
3. If you get the special card, you lose all your cards.
Alternate ways of playing are to put two cards back when you get a special card or put your cards back but keep out the special card--these will keep the game from going on forever.
My kids beg me to make these games for all our spelling patterns and vocabulary lists!
These can also be used just as flash cards or word wall cards.
