What educators are saying

These were super fun! I used for summer school as a different type of activity and the students really enjoyed.
Does take a bit of prep work but I suggest laminating so you can use them long term. Great resource and engaging!

How to use the product?

★ Print and laminate the cards. Have students pick a card from a hat or pile on a table.

★ Students can read the cards themselves or have them read by a teacher/peer.

★ Once the students respond correctly, they can hold onto the cards. There is also a page of cards to award bonus turns or “lose a turn.” At the end of the game students can add up their cards to determine a winner.

★ On each card is a number in the top left corner. This is if you wanted to use this activity as a “center” or for students to complete answers independently. They can use the numbers to record their responses on the “answer recording sheet.” This can also be used to help students stay attended to the game being played. You can give students extra “bonus points” for writing down all of the answers as they play.

★ The review worksheet can be used as home practice or as review at the end of the game to collect data.


Benefits of this resource:

★ Little or no prep

★ Tons of opportunities to practice

★ Perfect for mixed groups

★ Two versions to use (digital or printable)


What are other customers saying about this product?

"I've been able to use this in so many ways for my diverse caseload. Thanks so much!"

"Nice resource for my middle school students who are targeting critical thinking skills!"

"An excellent resource for students who need to work on comprehension and answering questions. Many times the answers to questions asked in accountability testing are not directly found within the text, but must be inferred or when the best option must be selected among other reasonable answers."
