Parts of Speech Card Game – Upper Years Classroom Game – Set 3

PDF | 7 pages|Grades: 3 - 5 | Starter Sheet

A card game for nouns, verbs and adjectives.

Each player is dealt 7 cards and the remaining cards are placed face down in the middle of the group. This forms the draw pile. Players turn over the top card of that pile and place it face up to form the discard pile.

When it is your turn, place a card on the discard pile. Your card must have either the same colour or same part of speech, ie. verb, noun or adjective, or you may place a wild card down and change the colour.

Players must follow the directions of cards, such as draw 2, reverse or skip.

There are spare cards included in the download for you to add your own words.

If you need more cards to vary the game, please download set 1 and set 2.
