Five different sound review games get your students up, involved, and engaged. Practice sound concepts with Swat, Back, Draw, Head, and/or Pull. No more boring worksheets! Kids love these games!
How to Play:
Swat - Arrange cards on chalkboard or wall. Split students in two to four groups. Line them up facing the cards. Give the first student in each line a fly swatter. When you read a question, kids with fly swatters race to find and swat the answer.
Back - Tape or pin an answer to the back of each child’s shirt. Give each student a question. Have them find the child with the term that answers the question. As an alternative, have students ask yes/no questions of one another until they figure out the words on their backs.
Draw - Fold answer cards and place in a container. Have students take turns drawing a picture that represents the term.
Head - Organize students in groups of four. For each group, shuffle answer cards and place face down. Children take turns drawing answer cards and placing them against their foreheads. Group members call out clues until the child with the card figures out the term.
Pull - Build a tower of blocks. Split class into two teams. Have the player on the first team pull a block out of the tower and place it on the table. Ask that player a question. If he/she answers correctly, the first player on the other team picks up the block and places it on top of the tower. If the question is not answered correctly, the second player on the first team must place the block on top of the tower, pull out another block, place it on the table, and then answer a question. Play continues until a team topples the tower.
