Free Write Assignments: Whole-Class and Station Materials – Students select one of two idioms to use as a title for 12-minute free write sessions. Use the presentation slides to conduct whole-class Writer’s Workshop lessons or set up super-easy work stations (Station directions are included.)
Catch Phrase Game Cards - Catch Phrase is played by dividing a class into two different teams and having two student representatives from each team gather around a table in the front of the room (Students from the same team will face each other.).
On the table, students will find 26 cards (turned upside-down in the middle of the table) and a timer.
Each player takes turns trying to get his or her teammate to guess each idiom while holding onto a timer. When the idiom is guessed, the timer is passed to the next player.
When the timer goes off, the opposing team is awarded 10 points for that round. 3-5 one-minute rounds constitute a game.
Concentration Review Activity and Study Deck - Students assemble study decks for personal use or play the Concentration Memory Game with a partner.
