My class and I created the game verb charades one day when we were learning about verbs. I always enjoy hearing what ideas the class will come up with when you present them with a challenge. Ever since that game was created about 10 years ago, my students have LOVED playing it. So now here is Holiday Charades!
You can glue the pictures onto a colored popsicle stick or simply place them in a basket, box or jar. I usually placed the cards on sticks face down in a plastic jar with the sign attached to the front of the jar and kept it by my easel for easy access and it was always a great game to give a sub for a filler. The children also enjoyed playing it at Indoor Recess and if they had a choice activity. They would play this in small groups or with a partner!
The directions are similar to the good old game of Charades except you are simply acting out a verb or verb phrase that has to do with winter or the holidays. One child picks from the jar figures out what the picture and word shows, let’s you see it for proof and then acts it out for the class. The class gets 3 guesses. Whoever gets it correct, is the next person to act out the verb. If no one guesses it, I use my picking sticks, which have the student’s names on them, to randomly choose the next person to act it out!
I hope your class enjoys this games as much as mine have!
