Engage your students in this fun game that provides valuable practice spelling weekly words, doing basic mental math, and working cooperatively in teams.
Game instructions: 1. Divide the students into two teams 2. Call up a student from Team 1 and give him a word to spell. 3. If he is correct, he draws a “Chance Card”from a brown paper bag.
