This product includes two separate games to help your students review literary terms for the Reading STAAR test. This is intended to be a review for middle school.
Literary Terms Bingo
I have included 42 game cards and the calling words/definitions (76 total words are included in the cards). I usually copy these onto card stock or colored paper and then laminate them. I do the same with the calling words. This allows me to use them over and over again.
I usually give each student a card and some type of marker (Beans, gold fish, M&Ms, cut up construction paper, little plastic pieces, etc.). Then we play multiple games. I usually give the students a pencil, a small candy or a homework pass for winning each round. I also take anywhere from 5 to 10 winners per game.
Literary Terms Matching or Memory.
For this activity, I would copy these on to either colored paper or card stock. Then laminate them and cut them out.
I like to use these in my classroom during station activities. You could use them separately or combine some of them. I use them all when we are reviewing for STAAR. There are 24 fiction words (48 total cards), 17 nonfiction words (34 total cards, 15 poetry words (30 total cards) and 12 drama words (24 total cards).
There are two ways to use them, matching or memory. The only difference is whether or not the cards are turned facing up or facing down.
After students feel they have correctly matched all the terms, I give them an answer sheet. The answer sheet is just the cards before they are cut out.
