Students forget they are learning with this fun, whole class game. This game is an adaptation of traditional Concentration or Memory, designed for the whole class and played on the white board with the teacher as the guide. It is excellent for reviewing sets of matching terms at any level. I have used it with Elementary, ESL and Secondary English students; in all cases it has been highly successful. The tone of the competition is more dramatic in a class-based game than a desktop game and this is one of the advantages of this format. The other major advantage is that because the teacher is leading the game, she can provide guidance and instruction as play is underway, pausing to comment on and explain particularly important or difficult terms. Included in this 15-page package are instructions, a blank grid to make your own games, and seven pre-made games with master grids and answer keys with lists of the matching pairs. Four games are for the secondary level. 1. Matching Synonyms: Adjectives Describing Feelings. 2. Matching Antonyms: Abstract Concepts. 3. Parts of Speech. 4. Matching Homophones. Three of the games are for elementary students. 1. Matching Antonyms. 2. Matching Vowel Sounds. 3. Consonant Blends. These games are ready to use. With the instructions, though, you can make up your own from terms your class is using in a matter of minutes. If you enjoy the White Board games, take a look at the PowerPoint Concentration game in my tpt store for reviewing literary terms. This game is adaptable for countless learning targets and can be used effectively with any age or level.
