The 26 words in this resource are needed by students throughout the school year, for thinking, following directions, testing, studying, producing work. Practice at the beginning of the year, and continuing regularly, will help your kids understand and use these important skills. A good way to approach them is a few (or even just one) at a time, as they are needed for a particular lesson or project - there are too many to bombard them with at once!
“I Have, Who Has” games are great for review of important topics. My fifth graders always love them because the games keep them actively engaged in listening for their definition or answer. Also they are listening for others’ answers to be sure they are correct!
Additionally, these games are terrific for that five minutes at the end of class when you’ve finished your lesson. If you have additional time, they can get up, mingle, and swap cards to play again. Another method that might be useful is to do the game in the middle of class, as a transition or break. Have them stand up to read their clue!
One final advantage of this game, aside from the practice on the vocabulary itself, is that students must read aloud clearly and accurately so that all can hear! I wish I could shake the hand of the person who invented “I Have, Who Has”!
