Objective of Pop for Sight Words
The objective of Pop for Sight Words is to collect as many popcorn cards as possible by the end of the game.
- Place the popcorn box in the middle of the table.
- Mix up the popcorn cards inside.
- Choose a player to start the game.
Playing Pop for Sight Words
You will start your turn by randomly choosing one of the popcorn cards from the box.
Once you have taken one of the popcorn cards you will look at it. You will try to read the word printed on the card.
If you correctly read the word, place the card in a pile in front of you.
If you say the word incorrectly, you will place the card in a separate pile called the “un-popped” pile. Players will try to read these cards at the end of the game.
Whether you read the card correctly or incorrectly, play passes to the next player.
Should you draw a card with “POP” on it, you will handle it differently than normal word cards.
Instead of trying to read the card, you have to return all of the popcorn cards you earned on previous turns to the box. Set the POP card aside as it won’t be used again for the rest of the game.
Winning Pop for Sight Words
Players will keep taking turns until all of the popcorn cards have been removed from the box.
Each player counts up how many cards they acquired. The player that acquires the most cards wins the game.
After the game ends the players should go back through the cards set aside in the “un-popped” pile.
The players will try again to read these words.
