Root Words Spoons Game

 

 

Playing Spoons is a great way to practice skills. This FREE game provides practice with root words.Playing “Spoons”” is a great way to practice skills. Here’s how to play:

Playing the Game
The spoons are placed in the center of the table within reach of all players and four cards are dealt to each player. Players take one card from the four dealt and pass it the player on the left. The player then receives a card passed from the player on their right. All players simultaneously pass a single unwanted card face down to their left, and then take the card that the player to their right passed to them. This continues until someone collects a matching set of four. [Four cards containing the same root word.]

Winning the Game
When a player collects a matching set of four cards, nothing is said. Instead the player quietly reaches to the spoons in the center of the table and as slyly as possible moves one to his/her front. Once a player has taken a spoon, all the other players must do the same, even if they themselves do not have four of a kind.


The player left empty handed is out. When there are only two players left, they are the joint winners.
