#SOL17 - 19/31 - What have you never?
SOLC17 19/31 Connecting to the Two Writing Teachers community for Day Nineteen of Thirty-One of the Slice of Life Challenge in March. Thank you, Stacey, Beth, Deb, Betsy, Lanny, Kathleen, Lisa, and Melanie.
I thought it would be fun to share a group game I used to have fun with in my classroom. It's called "I've Never. . ." Each player receives five (or three if there's less time) toothpicks. Each time the player HAS done the shared action, she or he must forfeit a toothpick. The one or you can choose to have three who still have at least one toothpick are the winners! You can time it and those left are the winners. We used to play at the end of the day when there was about thirty minutes or less left in the day. The class became very creative as they became more experienced!
Want to play? What would you share that you've never. . .? As you see from my list, this can get silly. And I adjusted after knowing about the students in my class too. This time, I've adjusted knowing that adults are "playing."
I've never. . .
had braces (so, if you have had braces, you would lose a toothpick)
gone snow tubing (even here in Colorado)
worn prescription glasses
read Moby Dick
been on a cruise
had a king-sized bed
traveled to Asia
watched "Game of Thrones"
