Mad Sentence Dash
Use this up-front game before any holiday (so you have an automatic theme) to promote an upcoming event, or just for fun. Pre-select a theme to give students an idea of what sentence they’re about to come up with.
Set up two dry erase boards up front. Get 4 students (2 teams of 2) to come to the front of the room. Give each of them a marker. Have each half of the room be on the team of either two people. Each side of the room can yell out suggestions for their “team”.
On “Go!”, one of the students from each team starts a sentence (If your room is big, make them run from half way across the room up to the stage, then back again when they’re done.). The 2nd person continues with another word. It’s up to you whether the contest is a matter of time limit, number of words, sensibility, or creativity. vYou decide how the winning team wins. Buy a couple of those cheap paperback thesauruses or dictionaries to award as prizes.
