This is one of my go-to partner activities for warm-ups, stations, and review. The words can be easily swapped out with verbs, math problems, historical figures, whatever!
This one is specifically for my ESOL students in order to practice transition words. They roll dice to determine which transition word they need to use in a sentence. If they do so correctly, they receive a point, and the first partner to earn six points earns extra credit. By getting to roll dice, my students are somehow tricked into thinking writing is fun :)
Dice are needed to play this, but they can be purchased very inexpensively at Wal-Mart or Target.
