Description

Take ELA review days from dull to dazzling with this Jeopardy-style classroom game! This highly engaging Author’s Purpose Game Show PowerPoint activity makes the skill of finding the author’s purpose of a paragraph something that students are EXCITED to do!

My class CHEERS when they see this game in the plans. Students will be listening to your every word as they work hard to earn points for their team.  It’s a win-win for you and your students: you have a no-prep activity that practices important standards and kids will have FUN and be challenged to use higher-level thinking skills as they move their way through the scaffolded questions and categories!

I play this game a little differently when in whole group. I like to have all students ENGAGED and REVIEWING every question.  So, I do this by having each team answer every question. Here’s how it goes:

  1. Divide students into groups of up to six teams.
  2. One team chooses the category and amount. EVERYONE answers the questions with their groups and records their answer on their whiteboards.
  3. The team whose turn it is shows me their answer. If correct, I award them the points. If incorrect, any team that has the correct answer can go for the steal and get the points for that question.
  4. Then the next team gets to choose the category and points.
