I almost certainly didn’t make this game up, but I publically challenge anyone to prove that they’ve overexploited it as much as me!
The rules are incredibly simple: Students complete at least some of the sentence stems that their teacher gives them (e.g. “I would be happier if…” or “I always…”), then read out some examples of what they have written (but not the original sentence stem) so that the other students can guess which sentence stem they wrote that in. More confident classes can do the same game without the initial writing stage and/ or make up similar whole sentences for their partners to guess the start of without any help.
It’s fun and personalised, and uses a mix of skills. What more could you ask for?
