Zoom Around the Room Category Game
This is a must have game in my classroom. Students don't even realize they are learning in this fast paced category game. Students compete in pairs to name a category answer. The winner gets to race/advance around the room until beat by another opponent. It's a great listening skill game as well. The 90 category cards I've made are open ended making this a game to come back to AGAIN and AGAIN. It's perfect as a quick time filler which my students beg for. I always leave a copy of this game in my sub tub and I don't know how many "Thank You's" I've gotten from appreciative substitutes! Sidenote: I also modify this and use it for transition times like waiting in line. When I do, I just call off a category and call on random students to share their ideas. Do you have more great transition tips? Hop on over and join Empowering Little Learners linky party.
