☆ What is U-Know? ☆

U-Know is a fun and engaging card game where students practice topics in a repetitive way. I also use U-Know in stations or with early finishers throughout the year to spiral concepts for students. U-Know comes in MANY topics! So, once students learn the game, it will become a self-run station!

U-Know is played with students matching color/number to the card the previous player put down. Once they put their card down, they must read and answer. If correct, play moves on. If incorrect, the player draws 2 new cards and play moves on. Students check answers with the included answer key.

☆ Options for Use in the Classroom ☆

  • Partner Game
  • Small Groups
  • Stations or Centers
  • Early Finishers
  • Test Prep or Review

☆ Perfect for: ☆

  • Teachers who want students to become comfortable with using games in the classroom
  • Teachers looking for a fun and engaging game to practice specific skills
  • Teachers looking for resources that are standards-aligned
  • Teachers who need quality test-prep resources, center activities, practice, or review that is fun and engaging
