*In Charades, one student selects a card from the pile and acts out the word without speaking. The other students need to guess which word is being acted out! Using Charades creates differentiation for all students.
Some of the benefits of Charades are:
• allows student interactions
• high student engagement
• team building
I use this resource in multiple ways. I use it in small group for students who need more support. Students who don’t need as much support use it in a center, and I also play Scoot (whole group activity) with these cards. The Charades idea came from my brilliant students! My students loved acting out the nuances of the given words for a review! Your students will ask to play long after they have reached mastery!
Understanding nuances in language can help students…
* improve reading, writing, speaking, and listening comprehension skills
* build their vocabulary by learning new words and meanings
* develop an appreciation for word relationships, and nuances in word meanings
* This is an important language and social skill.
These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
