And For An Extra Helping Of Winter Cheer…
We also suggest using this game to reinforce your small group and full-class lessons in the following ways:
☃️ Odd (Snow)Man Out
Place 3 cards at each station, making sure 2 cards create a matching set, and the 3rd card is different. Student pairs will rotate through each station and match the winter words. Remind students to reshuffle the cards before moving on to the next station.
🔗 Winter Words Human Chain
Provide each student in your class with a domino. Challenge the students to find both of their other halves, creating one long chain of dominoes. For an extra challenge, ask the students to complete the task in silence!
✂️ Upcycle Into Playing Cards
Turn this game into a deck of cards! Break out your scissors and cut up the cards in half. Students can play games like Match It, Go Fish, or Snap (to name a few).
