I wanted to do it at the very end of the day so as not to be using instructional time really.
Well, let's just say, when you play a review game for a test that is tomorrow that they have known about for 2 weeks, and NO ONE knows the answers, and kids start discussing that they HAVEN'T really studied yet (This is one on about 15 countries of Europe- capitals and locations, and the Islands of the West Indies- capitals and locations. It isn't something you can cram!) They had flashcards, a map, a game on our class website. When a student tells you that the capital of Puerto Rico is the United States or the capital of Spain is France, you just want to cry. Just to be fair, they did start this with the sub, but they have known, and we have reviewed it! So, we did not get a chance to pull a name. We were having a "talk".
But, the game is afoot. The pieces are in play. All of the hundred little slips lie resting in their basket ready for an 11 year hand to wrench one out. If it has Cheetos crumbs on it, I apologize.
Here is a teaser... Yup. Those are the slips...
