What else do I need to set up the game?

You will need: Pawns of some sort for each player – mini erasers work great.

How do you play the game?

It was designed as a partner game but can be used with 3 players if your class has an uneven number of students. Instructions for set up and play are included; but it an easy draw a card and advance around the board type of game.

How can I use this game in my classroom?

It can be used for teaching in guided reading groups, review in literacy centers, for extra practice with volunteers, or fun for early finishers. Just print one game board and set of cards for each set of partners or small group.

Do you have any other activities for this skill?
