I tried a new game out this week with my class for vocabulary. I wrote vocab words on laminated sentence strips and connected them with paper clips (so they could be adjusted and used over again). They had to walk around and ask "yes/no" questions. Rule- They couldn't ask a question to the same person twice...so new person for each new question. When they figured out their word, they knew to take a seat until everyone was finished.
****THEN they shared what they thought their word was and talked about the clue that gave the word away- good for context clues.

few try to figure their word out.
