The "Silly Sentence Christmas Game" is a fantastic literacy game for everyone. Teams flip up four different "Starter Letters" and race to brainstorm their list of Christmas Words that begin with these letters. Teams then "race against the clock" to create silly sentences using their words.
Students are immediately engaged by the fun competitive rules that are designed to be inclusive of all players.
There is no "waiting for your turn", so the pace of the game helps to keep all students focused and "on-task".
For differentiated instruction and for students in primary grades, a Variation of Rules is included with some teaching tips that outline a more cooperative, whole class approach.
This is a fantastic activity for developing word vocabulary and creating fun sentences with the added task of writing and recording all responses.
Children AND adults love to play this game and it is a perfect Xmas party-group activity.
Send the game rules home for your "Little Geniuses" to teach their relatives and friends over the holidays.
