MEMORY BINGO: students play as individuals. There are two aspects to this game: memory cards and bingo boards. There are two types of cards - possessive adjectives and possessive pronouns. The former, I write in blue and the latter, in red. Students take turns trying to match blue and red cards (for example, their [the adjective] and theirs [the pronoun]). When they get a match, they must go to their bingo boards. Bingo spaces have three sentences on them. The first is the full sentences, such as "That book belongs to Sarah." The second has a blank for the adjective: "That is _ book." The third has a blank for the pronoun: "That is _." Students would put the words her and hers into these spaces, respectively. The great part of this game is that students have to pay constant attention because they are trying to memorize where each card is in order to win the game.
DISNEY: students are divided into teams again. There is nothing better than a Disney movie to teach protagonist and antagonist. This was a very simple game. I chose twenty movies and printed out pairs of characters from each - one protagonist and one antagonist (for example, Aladdin and Jafar). I also printed out the title of each movie. Each team is then challenged to place the characters with the appropriate movie with protagonists on the left and antagonists on the right. The team that does it fastest wins the game. While the students knew most of the characters and the movies, they weren't sure of all of them, and they were allowed to use the internet to research. They had to decide if it was worth using up time to check the information. The timed challenge kept them on their toes and they loved physically manipulating the cards on the floor.
