I have a "POP" sight word game that my students love the play during guided reading lessons. I'm sure you have played some variation of this game before. Basically the idea of the game is you choose a card and read the word on it. If you get it right, you keep the card. If you get it wrong, it goes back into the pile. If you get a "POP" card, all your cards go back into the pile. Simple and fun. My kiddos never tire of this game!

Well I wanted to use this same game idea to reinforce some math concepts. Enter the BUZZ game! Same idea, but I have made a version for 2D and 3D shapes. Students choose a card and identify the shape on it. If they get it right, they keep the card. If they get it wrong, it goes back into the pile. If they get a "BUZZ" card, all of their cards go back into the pile! The player with the most cards is the winner! Click any of the pictures below to check these games out on TpT. You can play them with the whole class, during your small group time, or put it out as a math centre!
