Great high energy game for reviewing Dolch NOUNS Sight Words! Other sets are available in my store. These cards could also be used on a Word Wall.

This is a “Slap Jack” style game that includes a center pile to tell you which card to slap.

Teacher Instructions:

**Each “set” consists of one red page and one teal page. However, you can mix and match sets for your purposes. You can also combine sets for a larger game.**

Print on card stock and/or laminate the cards. (Card stock is recommended because some children will try to see through the cards.)

I recommend printing 2-4 copies of the DEFINITION cards for more thorough review. More copies will create a longer game.
WORD cards are red and DEFINITION cards are teal for easy sorting. If you want to review words in a different order simply print the pages with the words you want and make your own sets. All sets match for this reason.

To play: 2-4 players

  • Place the word cards face down in a pile.
  • Deal the definition cards equally among players. Place them face down in a pile in front of each player.
  • Decide the first player.
  • Flip over one of the WORD cards.
  • In clockwise order players flip one card at a time. When a DEFINITION card is flipped that matches the WORD card: SLAP-IT!
  • The first player to slap the card takes the center pile of cards that have been played and adds them to the bottom of their own pile.
  • Flip another WORD card and continue playing.
  • Game is finished when time is up or one player has all the DEFINITION cards.
