Slap Words Literacy Game

Literacy Game and Kindergarten Lesson Plan

This game from Linda over at Kindergarten and Mooneyisms is pure genius! Dividing students into groups of four, provide each group with a set of word cards and invite them to work together to lay the cards face up on the table. To play, call out a vocabulary word and the first player to slap the correct word card gets to keep it. At the end, the player with the most cards, wins! This game would also work well for reviewing letter/numeral recognition, math facts, rhyming words, word families, etc.

[NOTE: We think it's a great suggestion to create different colored word cards for each group, making it easier to keep the 'decks' separate!]

For the activity, as well as suggestions for a successful game experience, be sure to visit Kindergarten and Mooneyisms!
