Make a TIC-TAC-TOE game to practice spelling, writing, grammar, math facts, multiplication, anything you determine that you’d like to write on the sticky notes. Sticky notes allow you to change the game content without creating a new board each time.

You will need a file folder, 9 sticky notes, index cards or paper, scissors, a pencil, a ruler and a sharpie marker.
How to make the game: Using the sharpie marker and a ruler, divide a file folder into 9 equal sections. Cut index cards or white paper into squares that will fit into the spaces on your file folder. Make 5 “X” cards and 5 “O”cards. Write content in pencil on the sticky notes.
Example of the sticky notes for the file folder: A tulip shaped sticky note is used for the example photo. Each sticky has one one word written on it in pencil so that you can erase the words and reuse the sticky notes.
Skill for this example: rhyming, word study features review, writing; word study features, “au, aw, oo, ui, ew, ea, oa, and ou.” I have written one word on each tulip. The words used are: blew, crawl, cow, teach, boat, shout, book, shoot, and suit.
How to play: The players take turns choosing a location for their “X” or “O”. Each player has to write a new word that rhymes with the original word on the sticky note before placing the “X or O” in the space.
The winner is the first player to achieve three in a row.
