“I have, Who has?” is a pretty simple game that is common among early elementary grades. Traditionally, player one would read their first card. The player that has the next letter goes next. Play continues until all cards are called.
- Player One: “I have A. Who has M?”
- Player Two: “I have M. Who has K?”
- Player Three: “I have K. Who has X?”
This game is great because it can be played with two players or twenty-six players. It is more fun with more players, making it a great game for classrooms.
But, homeschoolers that are playing with just mom may get overwhelmed by holding thirteen cards. So, I play an alternative version with the Champ.
I simply lay twenty-five cards in the floor face side up. I hand him the last card and we read it together. Then he has to find the next letter until all of the cards have been picked up.
- Card one reads: “I have A. Who has M?”
- The Champ finds the “M” card and reads “I have M. Who has K?”
- The Champ finds the “K” card and reads “I have K. Who has X?”
To make the game a bit more challenging, you can place the cards face down. To get your child’s wiggles out while you play, spread the cards all over the room. They will have to run around to find the next card.
I recommend printing on cardstock and/or laminating the cards to make them more durable. I use the Scotch Thermal Laminator.
