On the Spot Game Board for Fiction Narrative by April Bryant is a versatile tool for active participation. Students work in pairs or trios to practice, review or assess comprehension of narrative fiction. The activity requires a game board, a die and a chip or other sort of marker for each player. Students roll the die to see how many spaces to move. The question written in the circle is completed and verified by team members. If correct, the student earns the number of points on the die. If not, a students turn is lost, points are void and it is the next player's turn.
As follow up activities, I have asked students to begin from the start, roll the dice 5 different times and write the answer for the corresponding spots on a 'ticket out' of class.
Enjoy this active participation comprehension game.
It works best as a bell ringer or end of class last few minutes filler.
It is also very suitable for tutoring sessions, Rti or other intervention and small group instruction.
