Game Board: For this activity you will need poster board, markers, and blank index cards. You can use different coins for the game board markers. On the poster board draw squares that connect, make a track and start at one side of the board and go to the other. After drawing the track and squares, color the squares a variety of different colors. Next, take the blank index cards and you will write a simple one-step direction on each card. You can choose actions to perform, words to generate, or questions to answer. For example, for action cards, they may say this such as; Hop on one foot for 10 seconds. Turn around three times. Do 9 jumping jacks. If a player picks a card that wants a word, examples of this may include; Say a word that has a long vowel. Say a word that rhymes with top. Write down a color word. If the card is asking a question, it may ask things such as, What is the setting of a story? Who are the characters in a story? Can you name a story that you have read in school this year? These are just samples of possible playing cards. After you have written the questions/directions on each card you will need to write how many spaces the player will get to move after they have followed the directions on the card. Next, you will need to decide what coin each player will use for their marker. The youngest person playing the game gets to go first. They will pick a card and if they are able to follow the instructions on the card they will move the number of spaces indicated on their card. The next person will repeat the same process (pick a card, complete the request from the card, move the number of spaces). The person to follow the game board to the end and arrives at the end first, wins.
