Great partner game! My students love this game. Goal is to make a square around as many words as possible! works best with two different color markers
Partner 1: connects two dots vertically or horizontally
Partner 2: does the same thing
When one partner gets the chance to close they box they have to read the word aloud, if they can read the word than can close the box. If they can't read the word, they have to make a line somewhere else! When student makes a box, they put their initials.
Variations of games:
say definition of word before closing box
use the word in the sentence before closing the box
Early finisher activity:
Students go back and ready all their boxed words aloud to partner, or use each of their words in a sentence, or define each word!
