Hey Friends! Can you believe that we are more than half-way through April?!? What the what?!?
Anyway, being that we are getting close to that crazy end-of-year time, I wanted to share with you this new product in my store. It is perfect for that how-can-I-keep-my-precious-little-squirrels-from-destroying-me-themselves-and-my-classroom time of year!
All kids need to play is something to read, a pencil, and this game:
This gist of the game is this:
Using novels, short stories, magazines, textbooks, cookbooks, articles, or any reading material of your choice, players will need to select a line or lines from their reading that they think best follows the opening line the judge reads from the card he plays. If the judge picks that player’s line, s/he get to keep the card and win the round. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins!
Can I tell you how much fun we had playing this game! Each round will produces a ton of laughs and will introduce your students to some exciting future reading material. And, you can have students record some of the best combinations to use as stellar openings for future writing pieces. The game is a win, win, win!!
Got any great game ideas to share to help us all get through the end-of-the-year craziness? I’d love to hear about them. Comment below or stop by my Facebook page to share 🙂
