Review Game Toss & Answer Muffin Tin Game for CC ~6 slots for specific memory work for that week, then 6 general category topics--to review past weeks (pick a card from that topic)
VOCABULARY: Muffin Tin Reading Games. Vocabulary words are placed in the sections of a muffin tin. Students take turns tossing a ball into the muffin tin. The student describes the meaning of the word or uses it in a sentence. This will help students with internalizing new words; they have a chance to share with their peers and give examples for their own experiences. Also this will help students who are visual or kinesthetic learners.
Toss and Answer Muffin Tins: Just put some words in a muffin tin and have the child toss a ball or bean bag into the tray, and then read that word.(fun review game)
