This packet contains the materials to make a language jeopardy / Quiz game for the preschool / Kindergarten age, or for use with Special Day class students. I frequently play these types of games with my groups in Speech therapy.
I also have several different templates for articulation jeopardy, which I will be posting soon.
-Cover page / Instructions
-5 category headers (What Am I? / Categories / Opposites / Where Am I? / Emotions)
-5 question cards for each category (25 questions total)
-25 color-coded point cards
You will also need: 25 8x5 inch index cards, glue
1.Cut out all of the question cards, point cards, and headers.
2.Glue the question cards onto index cards. On the opposite side of each card, glue the corresponding color-coded point value.
3.Glue the headers onto construction paper or print onto card stock.
1.Pin the headers onto your wall / tape on your whiteboard.
2.Underneath each header, place the question cards, with the point values facing the room.
1.Divide students into teams .
2.On their turn, a team gets to decide on a category and point value. The question is read out loud. If the team answers correctly, the team gets the points. If the answer is incorrect, the other team gets a shot. Teams take turns picking questions.
3.The star cards are “Double Jeopardy” cards and worth double the amount on the front.
4.The team with the most points wins.
Version 2 (my preferred for SDC groups)
1.This version is students playing versus the teacher / SLP.
2.Students take turns choosing a category / point value.
3.They then have to come up with the correct answer as a team. (Or you can take turns calling on them until someone gets it right).
4.If they know the answer, they get the points. If they do not know the answer, teacher/SLP gets the points.
5.Whoever has the most points at the end is the winner!
6. Star cards are double jeopardy cards and worth twice the points.
This jeopardy game is great for promoting cooperative / team skills in your classroom in addition to building language skills. While the preparation takes some effort, once the cards are made you can laminate them for durability and reuse it every year!
