I have, Who has... is a great game to help students practice a specific skill. It can be used in whole group, small group, or as a center.
In this product, you will receive 28 game cards. Each card is focused on understanding descriptive text structure while tying in a review of adjectives.
HOW TO PLAY:
1. Print, cut, and laminate each individual card. There should be 28 cards total in a set.
2. The game can be played as a whole class, in small group, or as a center. Distribute all of the cards to your students.
3. The student with the card that says, “I have the first card” begins the game
4. The student reads the “I have” portion followed by the “Who has” portion of their card. All of the other players listen closely to the description.
5. The student who has an “I have” answer that matches the previous “who has” description will read their card. This will continue through all of the cards.
TIPS FOR USE:
-If students have multiple cards, have them flip over the card once it has been used so that they can focus their listening on what cards have not been used yet.
-Stop and engage students in discussion at times to ask them what adjectives and clues helped them to figure out the object being described
-After the game is over, engage in a reflective discussion of how the game would be different if only one adjective was provided and how descriptive adjectives and sentences can improve students' writing.
