The Name Game

This game is perfect for the first day of school or anytime you need a quick activity.

Provide some sample words to students such as:  send, jell, hunt, club, sink, wave, fire, late, done or game.

Ask students to create a sentence using the letters in each word.  The catch is they must use a different classmate's name in each sentence.  The words in the sentences must begin with the letters in the same order as the given words.  When creating your list of sample words you might want to start with your class roll to make sure you have a word where every student is featured.

This game easily translates to a reading center and can be changed around to suit any needs in the classroom.

Let me know if you come up with any interesting variations.

Example:  POTS      Peter ought to share.
