Reflection: Joy The Whipping Boy -Vocabulary - Section 3: Vocabulary Game


We had an assembly this morning which unfortunately put me in the position of having to choose between two of my passions: reading or computers. It was our turn turn in the computer lab today. I ultimately chose reading. In the middle of the lesson today the students realized my choice and commented that we were missing computers. I told them that we had a choice, we could either go to the computer lab today or have a reading lesson today and I chose the reading lesson. I was expecting to hear whines about not being in the computer lab, but instead I was greeted with thank yous. The students loved the vocabulary game. The part I loved about the game was that they were all engaged. Even if it was not their turn they were thinking about the answers because they wanted to be able to help a teammate if they needed help.
