Instructions

  1. Place a number of flashcards face down

  5. After someone pulls the whammy card, shuffle the cards and start again

Variations

  • Make the whammy card be a “safe” card, where everyone but the student who turned over the card has to perform the silly task
  • Have players get one point for each card the say/answer correctly
  • Play this game with regular playing cards to practice numbers, with one face card as the whammy
  • Combine
    playing cards with a list, using numbers 1-6 or so and having a
    numbered list on the side with six vocabulary words/grammar structures
  • If a student turns over a 3, they say the item that is third on the list
  • Use grammar structures and/or questions for more advanced students

Notes

If you use flashcards, make sure that you can’t see through the back!
