Activity 1: Vocabulary Game-Dump the Sweethearts
All students need practice with vocabulary and this is a fun game to use with any vocabulary words that come with your series or that you are trying to help your students master. Students should have practiced words before playing game. It is great for extra review or more practice with the vocab words you are studying. It comes with a blank sheet for kids to fill in vocabulary words they are studying. (There are 4 different game board varieties.) There is a tech version and a non- tech version. One version requires you to scan QR codes for the number on the dice you roll to see what to do. Another version has game boards to print off with instructions of what to do after you roll the dice. The goal is to be the first to cover all the hearts on your board. You need to know things about your vocabulary word like synonyms, antonyms, meaning of your word, or even how to use it in a sentence. Be careful not to roll the number that makes you Dump the Sweethearts!
