Idioms, Expressions and Figures of Speech Jeopardy-Style Powerpoint Game

Product Description
COMPLETELY REVAMPED AND UPDATED! Video Preview here!Unlimited play! - Over 150 common idioms in a dynamic Power Point set up provides endless replay value. Students will never know what is coming next! No Prep - just plug and play. POWER POINT IS NOT REQUIRED - if you don't have Power Point installed, this package will get you the free player so you can use it. I do think it is for windows computers only.

In my classes, I use this style of game to review for tests, to fill those slow times, and to find ways to reward the class and get them to work together.

Some variants I use to spice up the games and keep it fresh and exciting:

• All the students vs. the teacher. They have to get enough points as a team to win whatever prize (free time, no homework, etc.) BUT they lose 50 points every time someone calls out of turn! This is such a useful tool for classroom management. Want a positive twist? Instead of penalizing the impulsive kids, give bonus points to all the teams that don't call out - or only to the fewest caller-outers. =)

• Break the class into 50/50 teams - Left side vs. Right

• Odds vs. Evens - Just go up and down every row alternating which team gets the points.

• Evil Mode - Get out a piece of paper; no talking; write down your answers and it counts for a grade! Muwahahaha!

• Teach the technology - I mentor one or two students to run the game, then they mentor one or two. By the end of the year, all the students have learned how to use it well and some have even picked up VBA programming as a result. This really makes it easy for accreditation from SACS and AISF as they are always looking for evidence of how we are preparing students for our technology saturated world. Sometimes I can even grade papers while the class is running itself!

I am committed to your satisfaction - I have and will make changes and additions (often within 24 hours) based on feedback from you. Please let me know what I can do to make your teaching life easier!
