TAG

Every student in the class gets a vocabulary card. One student is “it”. The student that is “it” must try to tag/touch another student in the class. The other students run away from “it”. When the person who is “it” tags another student, he/she must read that students vocabulary word. Then, the person tagged becomes “it”.

Freeze TAG: 

Every student in the class gets a vocabulary card. One student is “it”. The student that is “it” must try to tag/touch other students in the class. The other students run away from “it”. If the person who is “it” tags/touches another student, that student must freeze (cannot run) and hold his/her vocabulary card against his/her stomach with the word facing out. For the student to become unfrozen/be allowed to run again, another student in the class must read his/her vocabulary word. After some time, the teacher picks another student in the class to be “it”.

Vocabulary Matching/Memory Game:

The teacher makes game cards where each vocabulary word card has a matching picture card. The teacher mixes up all of the vocabulary word cards and picture cards and places them face down on the table/ground. The students sit in a circle around the cards. One student at a time gets a turn to flip over two cards. If the student finds a vocabulary word card and its matching picture card, that student gets to keep the pair. The students play until all of the matches are made or cards are collected. The student with the most pairs at the end of the game is the winner.

Spelling Ball Game:

The students stand in a circle with a ball. The teacher tells the students a word to spell and the students pass the ball around the circle, each saying a letter to spell the word. If a student does not say the correct next letter to spell the word, he/she leaves the circle. When the students have spelled the word, the teacher tells the students a new word to spell. The game is finished when there is only one person left or when the students have spelled multiple words.

Post-it Note Sentence Scramble:

The teacher divides the class into two teams and has one student from each team find and collect words or letters, written on post –it notes to complete a sentence or word she says aloud, from around the classroom. The first student to put the words or letters in the correct order gets a point for their team. Then, the teacher calls up two more students.
