SNAP! Card Game in the Classroom – Sight Words, Number Sense & More!

March 4, 2019

Sometimes reviewing sight words gets boring. Am I right?! Same with other identification skills: numbers, letters, rhyming words, etc., so I am always on the lookout for some new and exciting games to play with my students. Just to spice it up a little!

Enter: SNAP! This is a fast-paced card game that you can play with any deck of cards. It is similar to “SlapJack” but instead of each card going into the same, middle pile, players each have their own pile.


If you don’t know already, I have a weekly game series over on my YouTube channel called, “Susan’s Sunday Spotlight.” This is where I share a new game every single week that you can take and use in your classroom right away! In the last video, I show how to play this game with a deck of cards as well as some other classroom skills. Be sure to subscribe to my channel so you can see every new game!


See how to play, SNAP! below:

As I mention in the video, you can adapt this game to the following:

– letter identification (uppercase & lowercase)

– number identification (#s 1-20)

– place value (2 digit numbers with base 10 blocks)

– rhyming words (cvc)

– rhyming words (cvce)

– sight words


You can easily grab some index cards and make these types of cards yourself, but in case you want to have some easy, print & go decks, I compiled the above cards in a little unit over on TPT here:


Pin to remember:

Reviewing sight words can get boring! This fun game, SNAP! is a great activity to have students reading and identifying sight words, numbers, letters and so much more! Head on over to the post to see how to play this easy card game for the first or second grade classroom!
