Tic Tac Toe
Students review vocabulary words using a Tic Tac Toe board game. Also called noughts and crosses or Xs and Os.
Time: 15 minutes
- Prepare vocabulary words to review, and number the words 1 – 9.
- Draw a Tic Tac Toe board game on the board with numbers 1 – 9 in the squares.
Divide the students into two teams. Designate one team as X and the other as O.
Ask the O team to choose a square by saying the number that is written in the square.
Say (the teacher) the vocabulary word that corresponds with the chosen number, and ask the O team to make a sentence using the word. Give a 30 second time limit.
If the O team is correct, then they get an O in the square. If they are incorrect, then the play goes to the X team. The X team can make the sentence or choose another square.
Continue the game until a team wins Tic Tac Toe (three X's or O's in a row: vertical, horizontal, or diagonal).
- Past Tense Tic Tac Toe: Teacher says the present tense verb, students say the past tense verb.
- Writing classes: Play Spelling Tic Tac Toe - Teacher says the word, students spell it.
