Reflection: Positive Reinforcement Strengthening Sentences by Playing Sentence Jeopardy - Section 5: Closure


My students created some unique, original, strong, complete sentences about various topics of interest to them.  I attempted to create categories in the Jeopardy game that were relevant to their own personal experiences and it proved effective.  Scholars enjoyed collaborating with one another to develop strong, complete sentences while playing Sentence Jeopardy.  They still find it challenging to respond in the form of a question.  They enjoyed the positive reinforcement of the winning team receiving treats!
