This is my third, printable Match-Up Game! All are fun, challenging, and ready to be used over and over in the classroom!
Accompanied with an EATS lesson plan and following the Common Core RI.7.4., the "board" gives 12 poetry structures.
At the beginning of the year, have students work in groups to match the poem to the poetry structure. As the year progresses, use this activity as a review to see if the students learned the material. Eventually, students will complete the activity individually.
It is a great activity for the end of the year, too. You will be impressed how much the students have learned. What took them 30 minutes at the beginning of the year now takes 10 minutes for many students!
Throughout the year, I use this as a "filler" when the power goes out or a bomb threat is called in (Yes, it happens!) without wasting students' time.
Once, my principal unexpectedly visited my classroom while the students were working on Match Up Activity #1- and he asked if I made this myself. He was impressed. Yay! (The happiness we teachers get from a pat on the back...)
Laminate the game board and pieces to use over and over!
I also print out copies and give at Open House and at conferences. My students' parents are always grateful!
