What to do

  1. It is best to play this game right before lining up at the door to go somewhere.
  2. Before introducing the game, create a list of irregular words using the Irregular word cards. Copy each word onto an index card, and pass out one index card to each student.
  3. Okay, it is time to line up for lunch. Please get in line when I call you. Today, we are going to do things a little differently. I am not going to call you by your name. Instead, I am going to call you by the word I just gave you. Listen carefully and pay attention!
  4. Call out each word on the list. Collect the words from the students as they come to line and check to make sure they are correct.
  5. Observe students. For students who struggle, give them help and make a note in an Activity Log.
