Community Level 2 – Familiar
Materials: Premade index cards.
How To Play: Leader passes out pairs of vocabulary cards–a word
on one card and its definition on another–to players. Each player
receives one card, either a word or a definition. Leader signals
students to find the match for their card by sharing card information.
Once each pair has been matched, players stand in a circle next to their
partners. Leader invites each pair to share what word and definition
they have on their cards.
Variations: Play using synonyms and antonyms,
homophones, prefixes with root words, suffixes with root words, city and
states, math facts, etc. Students may pair up before the activity to
make the match-up cards.
