THE WINNER SPINNER!
You’ll need one magnetic spinner*. If you haven’t read my full post on the winner spinner you won’t want to miss it! It gives you a long list of game ideas that are so easy to run and super fun for the kids. Check out the full post here.
On a whiteboard or chalkboard, draw a circle and divide it into two sections. Write the words Fact and Opinion.
Choose a student to come to the front of the group to spin. Give the child a word to use in his/her sentence. The child then has to speak a fact or opinion (depending on what was spun) using that word.
Once the child is done, he/she can choose the next person. Continue play until everyone has had a turn or the allotted time runs out!
Words that I have used for this game are below. You can use these words, or whatever thematic words your students are working on.
