Storyteller's Card Game
Our price: $32.99
A vivid and expressive vocabulary is the cornerstone of writing that sparkles, but who wants to memorize tedious vocabulary lists? Storyteller's Card Game introduces difficult vocabulary in a visually meaningful way. The game is simple: players take turns as the Master Storyteller draws one of the story prompt cards and reads it aloud. "Feeling as though you're being watched." The other players each choose one of the full-color humorously illustrated word cards from their hand that they think best fits the scenario. Will it be presumptuous, audacious, or wary? The Master Storyteller decides which word card is the best match, and whoever played it wins that round.
Developed with childhood literacy experts, the Storyteller's Card Game includes 300 descriptive word cards with definitions that reference the comical drawing on the reverse. There are also 200 story prompts, so this game has endless replay value. Additionally, we have included further ways to use Storyteller's Card Game in our Sixth-Grade Handbook. If you want your children to employ a richer, more precise vocabulary in their everyday speech and writing, start playing Storyteller's Card Game today.
Storyteller's Card Game is designed to be humorous. Do any of the 500 cards sometimes take it too far for your children, either with illustrations or prompts? You decide. If you don't want your children choosing descriptive words for "discovering you have magical powers" or "the teacher's sweaty armpits," you may prefer to redact an occasional card from the deck.

"...these cards are designed in such a way that they could easily be used for creative writing or oral storytelling. If you’re looking for a fun way to expand your kids’ vocabulary I highly recommend the Storyteller’s Card Game.”Read the Review
Such a fun game! And it’s education! Very interesting to see what words are matched with sayings. Only drawback is when I have to set a limit on how long we can play
A great one for our slower days or just when we play catch up to get us started
This is great for kids who struggle to cone up with ideas for telling or writing stories. My younger child likes this for telling stories out loud!
My 11 year old has always struggled with language arts so building his vocabulary was a chore for both of us. But he loves playing this game with me. We'll have my husband be the judge most of the time and gets so excited when he beats me. We haven't done any creative writing since it's summer but I can't wait to see how much his vocabulary improves next school year.
