Tic Tac Toe

Students review vocabulary words using a Tic Tac Toe board game. Also called noughts and crosses or Xs and Os.

Level:  Elementary

Topic:  Warmer

Time:  15 minutes

Preparation

  • 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.
  • Timer

Procedure

1

Divide the students into two teams. Designate one team as X and the other as O.

2

Ask the O team to choose a square by saying the number that is written in the square.

3

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.

4

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.

5

Continue the game until a team wins Tic Tac Toe (three X's or O's in a row: vertical, horizontal, or diagonal).

Notes:
  • 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.
