Sometimes you have a few minutes left at the end of the day you’d like to use productively.
Sometimes, you’re just an awesome teacher and you plan for an end of the day review on spelling, grammar, social studies, math vocab, etc. Here’s a super easy way to do it:
- Draw columns on the white board (1 for each topic you’d like to review)
- Title the columns from things you’ve done that day/week
- Write the following numbers under each column header: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50
- Divide your class into small groups (super easy if you have kids in tables already) and let a team choose a question.
- MAKE UP QUESTIONS AS YOU GO! Killer easy right!? Just make the higher point values a little more challenging. You can make any kind of question you want: multiple choice, true/false, fill-in-the-blank. Just do it!
- Keep track of points on the whiteboard
- Let everyone try to answer so that everyone is part of the review (choose whoever raises their hands, or choose a student number randomly, you choose)
- More than one team can answer if you make an answer with multiple answers (just day that the first team to raise their hands or whatever gets to choose the next question)
- Whatever team gets the question right, chooses the next category/point value
