This is a game I created for my students to use in our literacy centers. The rules of game play follow those of a modified, traditional UNO™, with a reading twist!
The deck includes 84 full-color cards to help your students identify synonymous words. I recommend printing on cardstock and laminating for durability.
On his or her turn, a player can put down a card has a synonym for the word on the top face-up card, OR a card that matches the color on the face-up card. The player should look for the synonyms first, before looking for a matching color or special card. When laying down a card, the student should say the word on their card.
