Bundle - David Goes to School - character trait sorting, cut and paste activities, yes/no game, writing, word wall cards, and task cards.


The game consists of:
• 2 heading - yes/no
• teacher instructions
• 2 character cards - David and Teacher
• 48 character trait cards

This yes/no game can be played with 1-2 players, small group or played as a whole class. To play as a group:
•Students sit around a circular table or on the carpet. Place the headings yes and no in the middle of the circle.
•If group of 6 students, give each student 8 character trait cards to place under the yes or no heading, and put the remaining 4 character trait cards aside.
•Students take it in turn to select a character card and sort their cards under the correct heading.
•Ask each student to provide evidence or a reason why they think the character displays that character trait or not.

Option 2 - Play Corners - whole class game
•Stick the heading yes in one corner of the room and no in another corner.
•Teacher calls out a character trait. Students walk to the yes or no corner.
•Select a student to give a reason why they went to the yes or no corner for that particular character trait.
•If the students went to the wrong corner then they are out of the game.
•Keep playing until you have a winner or small group of students who are left.

By playing this game regularly in class students will have a deeper understanding about character traits. This game also assists the teacher with class discussions about character traits and reasons why students believe a character has a particular character trait. Answers may vary with students as they have different beliefs and personal opinions.

Please see the preview for a closer look at some of the game cards.
