I have been running with Naughty or Nice as a sight word game for years. I've used it with both K and 1st graders! However, I got to thinking today . . . why couldn't I use this game for other concepts?? Well, I did just that. This game has a pre-made sight word version as well as a number bond/missing addend version. But, I thought . . . why stop there??!! You all are in different places and have different needs. So, I created a blank version that is completely editable. You could use this to build just the right game for your crew. I see this working for spelling words, vocab, word problems, and math facts (addition/subtraction/multiplication). The sky really is the limit on this one.
In this game, you draw cards from the table. Your goal is to "capture" the card by reading/solving it. However, there are 6 Naughty or Nice Cards hiding in the deck. If one of these cards is drawn, the player gets to decide if he/he wants to be NICE (give a card to another player) or NAUGHTY (steal a card from another player). There are also 4 Coal Lump Cards in the deck. If one of these cards is selected, the player must put all of his/her cards back into the deck. I will warn you . . . this one gets a little loud . . . THEY LOVE IT. However, the giggles and yelps are worth the smidgen of extra noise . . . at least in my book :)
I also tossed in some follow up pages. I have this "thing" about themed work all fitting together in a nice little package. Well, both game versions have such pages. You will find two sight word trace, build, and write pages. In addition, I made a missing addend fact page and a number bond page. We are working on these things . . . so, why not just include 'em??!!
Finally, I like to do a Naughty vs. Nice Write every year. They always crack me up and they provide such insight into your little babes :)
Alright, that's it from little old me. I am off to make copies at the hubby's work (oh, the perks a teacher gets when her man is working with his dad). I decided it was just too cold to take the 15 minute drive to school today. Don't judge . . . it's 38 here. I know . . . I know . . this Cali girl is a big wussy compared to all the SNOW going on in other parts of the country! I hope y'all have a great week. I'll be in touch soon :)
