Put a twist on Simon Says to help kids with geometry vocabulary. Kids make parallel and perpendicular lines, segments, points, angles, polygons, demonstrate symmetry, and more by using their arms, legs, and friends! This activity gives kids a chance to get super creative and helps them retain geometry terminology.
work boxes, have one for each student, when they finish their work they can go to their work box and pull out things to work on that the teacher has placed in there. (lets the teacher assign different things for the student/if they need extra practice in an area) - DIFFERENTIATION!
The game is simple. You take turns drawing cards out of a container. If you can read the sight word you keep the card. If not, the card goes back in. Whoever collects the most cards wins the game. Beware of the BANG cards though. If you draw one, you have to put back all of the cards you have collected." STI loves this idea! Use unit review questions, instead of sight words, for middle schoolers!
