Do you have too many students who try to be "in charge" all the time? Could your class benefit from practicing how to let others figure things out for themselves? Are listening, waiting, and patience virtues that need honing in your classroom?
If so, you are not alone. No Talking, No Bossing is the perfect game to help your students practice being better collaborators.
After learning and playing this game, I have come up with 16 different tasks for your students to tackle. Following the prompt to the teacher's satisfaction is the name of the game. The kicker is that students are not allowed to talk or boss while completing the task! It is harder than it sounds. Making a four person rectangle has never been more challenging.
I have provided you with a best times chart, in case you would like to time your students. Competing with their own best time can help keep the tasks fresh while upping the difficulty level.
After implementing this game in my classroom, I am able to use the same vocabulary for many situations throughout my day. No Talking, No Bossing is a great way to start the year off, especially when it comes to procedures or group work.
This game is in PowerPoint and is formatted for Windows devices. You are also able to add or edit any slides you choose or add slides that suit your needs.
