I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love coming back to my classroom in January. By this point in the year, our routines are solid, and it is a great time to really dig in to content.
Even though second semester is always full of novel study, I still find that my students need a bit of review about all those different skills that we have worked on, especially with state testing coming up. I have blogged many times before about how I review reading comprehension, and I’ll link to those posts at the bottom of this post. But today, I have a couple of new ideas for you!
With this little game, the students have to find the definition for the reading skill AND match the key word/examples to the reading skill. It’s a fun, quick way to review all of these different ideas with students! I like to use this type of activity in a small group setting so that we can discuss the different definitions and key words.
I printed the two boards out and laminated them so that I could use them with multiple groups. Then, I printed the definitions on one color and the Key Word/Samples on another color. I cut velcro squares in half and put them on the boards and the backs of the definition/samples. Super easy!
