This game is designed for small groups of 2-8 players.
There are two different versions of the game based on what you want to target.
* The first version just requires students to answer basic questions about
themselves through sentence completion.
* The second version targets more conversational skills by requiring students to
use each other's names and ask each other questions to get to know one
Once you choose your version, print off as many copies as you need for the size of the groups you want to have. Laminate if you want to re-use.
Each group needs a fidget spinner. Cut off a corner of the game board and tape that triangle onto one of the protrusions of the spinner. ( If you don’t want to use a triangle, designate one protrusion as the “pointer” with a white-out mark or something similar).
Each student in the group is in charge of one “FIDGET” word around the outside of the board.
The oldest player goes first. Each player takes a turn spinning. One their turn they either ask/answer a questions, or cross out a letter that they land on. Letters can be crossed out in any order. **Variation: if you land on the same letter more than once, give that letter to someone else.
Object of the game:
Long version: Be the last one in the group to cross out the word “FIDGET”.
Short version: Be the first one in the group to cross out the word “FIDGET”.
This is a great activity to lead into classroom expectations for fidget spinners.
