Product Description
Everyone loves the memory games that encourage student practice of multi-step directions. In this version designed for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, a student decides on the number of tasks she is willing to try, draws that number from the 76 task cards provided in this packet, then twice read, tries to perform the selected tasks from memory, for
instance “Bark like a seal”; “Skip to the opposite side of the room”; “Pretend to brush your teeth”. We play the game whole class—the rest of the class supporting each player willing to give it a try, and at the same time, silently trying to remember which directions the player still has left to remember. Once you have introduced this game, it becomes an ongoing game of increasing challenge to play anytime throughout the year. I use this game as a “brain break”, to refocus after transitions, to re-energize students when they’ve been sitting far too long, and as a bonus activity when the assemblies and guest speakers end earlier than expected. This game works just as well in small groups, or as a center. And it is also an easy game to have in the sub plans, whether you include the game for the sub to play outright, or you include it in the plans as a “just in case” if the sub runs through your plans too quickly. The 76 printable task cards make this a print out and play game. I have also included student directions for display to use whole class or at a center, a printable individual student scorecard, a printable class scorecard, and teacher directions and recommendations for playing the game. The game record for any student of any class I’ve taught was set by a 4th grader, and was 18 single task directions, acted out correctly and in order. This record has stood for 5 years.
