What games or activities do you do?
Next week school starts as will my SETSS class (which is a resource room for about 10 kids). We will be doing daily vocabulary games. Here is my plan for next week in 7th grade:
Day 1: Present words. Turn and talk: which were the most difficult?
(The word list is from their reading, math, science, history and band classes. I will be choosing about 20 of those words which they were exposed to this summer).
Day 2: Cheat Sheet. In partnerships, students create a cheat sheet for their words. They may use up to 5 words or symbols per word. They may use their sheet during games for the week.
Day 3: Memory Concentration. Each partnership will have a concentration game. Winners get healthy snack!
Day 4: Team relay race. Partnerships do relay race with words. Winning team gets prize. What prize should they get?
Day 5: Re-assess words. Note: They were assessed on these words in July.
Please share what other games you use for vocabulary!
