Tip: Word Race! To review key vocabulary in any subject area.
How do I do it?
Trace a path on a sheet of paper or poster board. Divide it into 2-3 inch spaces. Write key words in each space. Teams of 2-5 roll a die or throw 3 pennies (and count the number of heads) and move that many spaces. They must either pronounce the word, say the meaning, or use it in a sentence. The first to reach the end is the winner.
Variations & Extensions
Write letters, numbers, or paste clip art or sketch pictures in each section of the path. Foe extra challenge, direct students to say a synonym or antonym for the key word. Students or a recorder can write down all of the sentences used and have a point system for good, great, or amazing sentences.
Common Core ELA Reading Standard 1
