What's Your Favorite? is the creation of Donny Yankellow and his cousin (the dads at 2FunDads.com) based on a game they play with their kids at the pool. They would ask "What's Your Favorite Ice Cream Flavor (for example)?" and the kids would jump into the pool screaming their favorite ice cream flavor. The kids (ranging in age from 7 to 11 at the time) loved the game and still do. As a result the "What's Your Favorite" card game was born.
Do you have to have a pool in your school? NO! You can play anywhere. Instead of jumping in a pool and shouting out an answer you can play charades, or draw the answer, or write it on a board. Make it a competition and see who can answer first. Give a time limite (10 second recommended).
Have students write sentences (or more) about their answer.
You can even reverse the question and make it what's your least favorite? or what's your second favorite?
The possibilities are endless! It so simple, but so much fun!
However you play make sure it is FUN.
