But last weekend, I did manage to whip something up that I am dying to share with you! I was thinking ahead, and I created this cute little game for you. (OK, and me!) My students played a version of Bang around Christmas time, and they just loved it! So I created a version for St. Patrick's Day. And yes, it's a freebie! (I've been slacking in that area too.) You can get it here.
These are the directions cards. There are 2 versions. One is "if you don't know the word, have a friend help you" and the other is "if you don't know the word, put the card back in the container" because I know people like to play different ways.
There are cards with 1st grade words and Kindergarten words, as well as a blank page of words that you can fill in your own words if you wish.
If you grab the hat, the Leprechaun escaped! You have to put all your cards back.
I hope you and your students enjoy this freebie! If you download, please leave me some love by way of feedback, either here or at my TPT store!
Want to hear a slightly funny story about this? I asked a friend of mine to print it out for me, because I am currently without a printer, and I sent it to him to print out. Later that day, I got a text that said "Leprechaun Bang doesn't sound like an appropriate game for first graders." I knew he was going to say something! I had to explain that it's more like "Bang, you're dead" than what HE was thinking of! It made me laugh quite a bit. But I kept the name anyway, because it made me laugh. :-) So I hope nobody is offended!
