Instructional Ideas

  • Laminate the game board and pieces so that you can continue to use these materials for years to come
  • When the provided sentences get repetitive, come up with your own new sentences (or have kids write some)
Classroom Considerations

  • The lesson procedures list peer evaluation as the final task, but do not elaborate on how to conduct the peer evaluation
  • Make sure to clarify to pupils that they should not read the final word on the cards out loud, as these are the answers
Pros

  • Answers are provided on the cards so that partners can easily confirm one another's responses
  • Comes with a board game, as well as sentence cards
  • The instructions clearly describe how to play the game
