On my way to work, I knew we would be doing a set of point of view task cards to reinforce what we have been working on. I thought about the board games that sat on my shelf, largely unused, and considered how best I could use them in conjunction with the task cards. I had seen some people play Jenga with task cards before, and I thought that my kids might like to do something similar. So, we did!
I pulled out Connect Four, Chutes & Ladders, and Candy Lane...All games that the students would know how to play on their own. Let me tell you, I've never seen 5th graders get so excited about these games!
The rules were simple. Each group had a set of task cards, and in order to take your turn, each student had to answer a question on one of the cards. The rest of the group had to agree with the answer before they could move on. The group also had a recording sheet that they turned in. Since it was in reading, the students took turns reading the cards orally to practice their reading fluency. It was a HUGE hit, and so easy!
