Words Memory Game...
A great game to increase awareness of multiple meaning words. Students have
picture cards (for example a picture that shows the meaning for a CAN of
beans and one that shows that someone CAN do something) dealt to them. They
leave these face up in front of them. The sentence strips that match the
pictures are placed face down in the middle. Students must choose a sentence
strip, read it out loud and decide if it matches one of the pictures in
front of him. If not, replaces it in the pile. This is a quiet game because
others need to listen and watch where the sentence strip is placed in case
it matches one of their pictures. This card game, which is included
with a full subscription has 27 sets of pictures and and the matching
This is a great game to play to help students with spelling list
words, core words, or new vocabulary words. Group your students into
rows or small groups. This spelling race board for the overhead will help to
fill up those five and ten minute blocks of time! (No overhead? Just print
off a copy of the game board and hang in by the whiteboard for a quick round
before lunch.) How to play? Give a student within the group a word to spell.
If he gets it right, mark an x in the box for that team. If he misses it,
offer it to the next group (this group gets to "steal" the word
and will not miss its regular turn in the rotation.) First team to fill in
all the squares wins the spelling race! This game is available with a full
site subscription. ( See Spelling
Race Game Sample ) The game board is available for groups of 5 or 6.
do a spring party for my students. Instead of a traditional Easter Egg hunt,
I have bunches of plastic eggs filled with small prizes (candy, Oriental
Trading Co. type small toys, etc.) sitting in a big box. The students may
color while we play the game for our egg hunt. I have dozens of questions
based on the various things we have learned throughout the year and I offer
the questions one at a time to each student. The students actually draw a
question out of a box. If the question is answered correctly, the student
gets to choose one of the eggs. The kids love to open the eggs, hoping for
something special. I do have some eggs stuffed with a coupon for a bigger
prize, such as a coloring book or Matchbox car, etc. Often, parents have
helped to provide the prizes. This is a fun, quiet activity that also
reinforces the learned curriculum. See sample questions: Sample
Questions for Egg Hunt
A full set of questions is offered with your paid subscription. The questions
are appropriate for grades 2 to 4.
This is a fun way to
review learned material. Based loosely on the Jeopardy idea, grouped students
will choose 5 point, 10 point, or 20 point questions in attempt to score for
their team. This game is available with your paid subscription. Additional sets of questions
will be available soon. Of course, you can add your own
