how to play

This flashcard game idea can be adapted to any language concept (in this case, to our Going Shopping topic). The instructions below are just a starting point to inspire you.

  • Put your cards in the box.
  • Players take turns reaching into the box and pulling out a flashcard. If they can answer to the question correctly, they get to keep the card. If the player is incorrect, the card goes back into the box.
  • Continue taking turns, collecting correctly answered cards.
  • If you pull out a BANG! card, you must put your whole pile of cards back into the box.
  • At the end of the game, whoever has the most cards is the winner.
