The Multiple Meaning Photo Card Game
By Becky L. Spivey, M.Ed. – Grades 2 & Up
Triple Talk is a fast-paced card game for improving vocabulary, comprehension, and reasoning skills by presenting students with words that may have different meanings based on their context. For example, you can swim in a pool, play a game of pool, or pool your resources.
Each of the 60 Word Cards in Triple Talk has three different corresponding Photo-Definition Cards (180 Cards). There are three levels of Photo-Definition Cards. Level 1 Cards have a definition most familiar to students. Levels 2 and 3 gradually increase in difficulty by using the words in contexts that may not be as familiar to students. The definitions present the words as simple nouns, verbs, and adjectives.
|To play, students listen to/read the Word Card and look to see if they have any matching Photo-Definition Cards in their hands. A student may be holding one, two, or all three of the Photo-Definition Cards. The students play as many matching Photo-Definition Cards as they have. The first student to discard all his/her cards is the winner.|
