This game is an oldie, but goodie, that can be adapted to become a learning center. I use this game as a way for students to practice drawing conclusions and spelling simultaneously. I also link it to Science and Social Studies content by providing flash cards that have facts about the planets, presidents, geography, and animals. Students can choose either the magnetic game or the paper pad. Plain pieces of paper can also be used.
One student reads through the fact cards and reads it aloud. Then he selects a word from the text. Now they follow the normal directions for the game and try to get the other partner to guess the word. Students take turns so each person has a chance to guess. They record the words guessed on the record sheet.
