I really love the iPhone/iPad game, Draw Something
for how it trains the players to communicate words visually. This social media enhanced one-to-one game doesn't work very well in my classroom yet as it is designed. So, I made an offline version to play on the interactive board featuring a collection of my saved drawings from games I was playing over the past month. I had enough that each of my students can take one turn trying to guess the word and spell it correctly. This worked great with my first graders who are just learning to read, write, and grow their vocabulary.You can download my game in PDF form here.
The next round for this game would be to let the students do the drawing after picking a random word from a hat. This will make a perfect end-of-the-year-we-can't-make-a-mess-in-my-clean-art-room-but-still-learn-and-have-fun Game
