Penny Pitch

penny-pitch

I found this game on an internet site more than ten years ago, so I don’t know who to credit, but thank you to whoever made it up.  You can play it with any set of flashcards, or wall cards, and a penny.  (The penny can be real or fake, but my kids like to use those big shiny fake doubloons.)

Spread the cards out on the floor with the children in a circle around them.  The player tosses the penny and reads or answers the flash card the penny lands on.  It is easy and fun.  I require the children to lay the penny on their fingertips and flip it slightly so it doesn’t fly all over the room.  Experiment to see what works best for you.

Variations: 

  • The player tosses the penny and chooses another student to read or answer the card.
  • Place the flashcards upside down so the question will be a surprise.
