Great game to play is "Go Fish" for reading practice. Make a group of of word cards with pairs.
Mix the cards, deal 3 to each player, and place the rest face down on the desk. When playing “Go Fish”, students ask for the match to one of the cards in their hand. If the other player has it, he/she must hand it over. The first player lays that pair to the side and it is the other person’s turn. If the other player does not have it, the person who asked picks a card from the card pack.
