Here some pictures I captured of a fun game we played this week: "Canon Blast"
First I have students pick a color for their pirate ship. I have magnetic chips, or "magic notes" in a variety of colors for the students to choose from. I love using this magnetic chips, but any bingo chips will do. Don't have bingo chips? Try placing a colored sticker on a penny. You will need at least 20 of each color.
Students identify their notes with flashcards and if they identify it correctly they get to put a chip on the matching ship. "Fire Canon One"
For a quick game you can have the student win the ship by placing one chip on the ship. For more teaching opportunities, make it three chips. Whoever has blasted the most ships wins!
