Hello! Teachingandtraining here! I teach 7th grade English with a variety of students on many different learning levels. For some of my efficient workers, they end up with a lot of extra time. As a solution, I have created a Tic Tac Toe board! Students can do a variety of activities related to English that can help boost their grade. For my students, I offer 20 points summative extra credit when they complete three activities from each column: writing, vocabulary, and reading.
The basic way it works is that students are required to do three tasks to earn extra credit. They must do one task per column so they have a variety of skills they’re working on. I require students to do all three to acquire any extra credit but you may choose to do it differently! Where the Tic Tac Toe aspect comes into play is up to you. I tell my students that if they complete all three activities in a row, according to how the board is set up, I’ll buy them their favorite candy bar as well as giving them extra credit points.
I offer a new Tic Tac Toe board every semester so that students have the opportunity each semester to earn extra points and they have plenty of time to complete all three tasks.
I hope the prompts I’ve included are useful for you. Please feel free to edit and change them to fit your needs! This can truly be edited to fit almost any grade level of English, or could be edited to better fit another subject!
