Heads Up Seven Up - Review Style

I remember playing Heads Up Seven Up in third grade and LOVING it! But, since when is there time to just play a game for the sake of playing a game?  There is always something to be teaching or reviewing.  Today I decided that I would edit the Heads Up Seven Up game a little bit so that I could use it as a review game in my classroom!  It went over really well!  The kids were really good and loved it!

I started by picking three students to come to the front of the classroom.  Everyone else put their heads down on their desk.  I would then ask a review question (synonyms, antonyms, homophones, long and short vowel sounds, same vowel sounds, contractions etc.) The students with their heads down on their desks would then put their thumb up if they knew the answer to the question.  I pointed to one of my three students at the front, the student I pointed to went and put someones thumb down and came back to the front.  Everyone put their heads up.  The person who had their thumb put down would answer the question and then guess who had put their thumb down.  If they guessed right they got to go to the front and the person who had put their thumb down went back to their own seat.  If they guessed wrong then the person who had put their thumb down got to stay at the front.  You can play as many or as few rounds as you want!

If you play with your students be sure to let me know how it goes!

Have a great week!

  3. Play free online games at bgames now. Website play games very good! A product from Tencent (China), the world's largest gaming company, is based on a popular PC-based game called PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG), by a Korean company. National development.

    In this game, gamers alone or collaborating with others will fight on a large island. Each battle will have 100 participants, based on the collection of weaponry appearing scattered across the island to destroy other people or teams. The final position on the rankings will determine the reward and experience that each player receives.

  4. I'm not sure your method could be improved upon - totally sending this out to the entire department tomorrow as several are planning to use Kuta for all of their worksheets this year

  5. Far Cry 5 joins the list of successes that Ubisoft has had since it published Assassin's Creed: Black Flag in 2013. The story mode apart from being entertaining offers a huge number of hours of solo or cooperative play. Far Cry 5 is undoubtedly the best installment of the saga so far.

  8. An early morning stroll can be enjoyable if the weather is just right, but a crisp cool breeze and refreshing raindrops would make it even better. Heads Up Seven Up is a refreshing rain and beer mixture that will help make the day even better. The beverage has an intense citrus flavor and a sweet taste. It is a great choice for those who love the taste of beer, but are looking for something more light. The beverage is best enjoyed with ice and soda. It can also be enjoyed as a refreshing summer cocktail, especially on a hot day. The beverage is perfect for all occasions.
