Lesson 1 of 9
Objective: SWBAT: read and comprehend realistic and authentic texts.
When I taught our Summer Bridge Summer Reading Program for incoming 6th graders, who are struggling readers, we often played this game if we had extra time. They loved it, and I saw great value in it because students were practicing reading skills without realizing it.
The cards are from an activity collection called "Practical Practice." For this lesson, I used the First Aid Instructions, and the How to Make a Paper Airplane instructions. I split the kids into two teams and they share a card. They then are asked corresponding comprehension questions (like First Aid Comprehension Questions and Paper Airplane Comprehension Questions). If I had a buzzer, I'd use it but I just have the kids slam their hands on the table to indicate that they have the answers.
I might give prizes like pencils or bookmarks to the winning team.
