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.
- 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.
