TV Game Show Review games are a popular way to review before tests. My idea is to make it into a center. Quite possibly one of my bulletin boards will be designated at the game show board. Or, I could just outline a place on the wall with bulletin board borders…
I have several links and files of digital TV Show game boards, but this will be one that is truly interactive. I LOVE technology, but I think in a center environment that this plan will work well.
Part of my “Centers” plan is that students will record their work in a journal. We journaled last year. Whenever there was an entry, students had to title it and date it.
For the game show center, a journal entry title might look like this:
11 octubre “Juego de Jeopardy”
The entry itself would be to write down the answers to the questions that they answered. I usually have them write the final score for all participants as well. Since it is review, the second step may be be to make a dialogue or story out of the answers in their journal. This would require each student’s dialogue or story to be unique.
So far I have plans to include $25,000 Pyramid, Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. I also think the bulletin board idea will work well for Tic Tac Toe, Memory, Checkers, What’s Missing, and many other typical classroom games.
I have also just pinned today a new game called Bazinga. Love the Big Bang Theory….
Remember that the TV Game Show Center should only be used on “Active” days, not days when students may be working quietly and intently.
Let me know if you have any other ideas for bulletin board games!
