Product Description
This is a game I play with my reading students to help them practice their vocabulary words. If you've never played Taboo before, you have to try to get your team to guess the word (vocabulary word) by giving them clues but without saying the word itself. You can make the game more challenging by only letting students give antonyms instead of synonyms or you could come up with a list of words that you want them not to say to make the game more challenging. I usually have the guessing team facing away from the board the person that needs to see the board facing the board. There should also be a student that is responsible each round for buzzing the student if they say any words they aren't supposed to. I usually choose the student that guessed the last word. This game could be used for any subject that has vocabulary.
