Jeopardy

My kids love playing Jeopardy!  It's such a great review game and the competition always gets crazy! We play mostly to review phonics skills, such as our word families or word parts/chunks.

We break into teams and use our dry erase boards.  I like to use the boards so that everyone is actively participating throughout the game.  I place my cards on a pocket chart have the kids divide into teams.  They always like to do boys vs. girls but sometimes I do a mixture.  I take turns choosing 1 person at a time from a team.  They get to say a value and a skill card {for example, someone might say "-ar for 500."  I read the clue aloud and the kids talk among their teams.  Everyone must write the word down.  *I encourage phonetic spelling BUT the kids must have the word chunk/spelling pattern included in their word.

Once the students have their words written, I reveal the answer card {which is really just the picture} and they of course cheer wildly because they are usually correct!  I use a score board that I made to keep track of the points. This is great addition practice!  The kids love seeing the big numbers!  The game continues, alternating teams.

So far, I have created a few Jeopardy games including Bossy r, Magic e, S-Blends, and Short Vowels.  I am working on more!  Click below to check them out.  Purchase the growing bundle for a discounted price!  The price will increase as more games are added.

Great idea! Do you think you will bundle these in the near future? Or will they most likely always be sold individually?
