Flashlight Fun

This is a great game to play whole class with the lights out, but everyone, or at least table groups need a flashlight each. The caller describes a word using the definition, synonyms, antonyms, or a sentence with the word left blank. Students then shine their flashlight on that word on the word wall without turning their flashlights on. When everyone is ready they turn on their flashlight and check their answers.

BINGO

This game is for two or more players and requires a bit more prep on your part. Using the words on the word wall, create a few BINGO cards. Students then take turns drawing a card and reading the definition and word if needed. From there the game is played exactly like BINGO with the goal being to get five words in a row. 
Materials Tip: I have had a couple of trustworthy students create the cards in advance for me in the past. They love it, and it saves me time!

Word Jar

The last installment of EVEN MORE vocabulary games for your students to play to cement their word wall words in their memory!This game can be played with two or more players and is essentially charades. Each word from he word wall should be written on a small piece of paper and placed in the jar. The first student pulls a word and then acts it out for the other students without using any words or noises. The other students try to guess the word. 
Management Tip: This game can get students rather excited and loud, but some deliberate modeling of examples and non-examples of proper play usually do the trick!

  1. BINGO: Depending on the age of the child - I give students a blank card. They create their own board. I remind them that they don't want anyone else's board to look just like theirs or they will never be the winner, so they are very private about it.
