Directions for Playing the Game

This game is similar to rummy. If 2 players are playing, then each student gets 10 cards in their hand. If there are 3-4 players playing, then they each get 7 cards. The rest of the unused cards remain in a pile facing down. When it is a student’s turn, they must pick up one card from the pile, or one from the discard pile (to make this easier to teach, I would omit picking up more than one card from the discard pile, like you can in Rummy). When it is a student’s turn, and after they have picked up a card, they can put down a 2 or more letter word. If they have more than one word, they can put more than one word down. Once a student is finished putting down words, they must discard one card in the discard pile. If a student picks up a WILD card, they can use it as any letter as long as they can spell the word correctly (they must identify the letter they are using it for). When a student has no cards left in their hand, they win that round and receive 10 points plus the points they earned for each word down on the table. The rest of the kids count up their words and get points per word played too (see the page that tells how many points each word is worth). You can determine how many rounds must be played to determine the winner of the game. Enjoy!
