Reviewing content with games

Don't we all love to make learning fun?  "I have...who has?" games are one of my favorite ways to engage the kids in a fun review of content!  I have several versions that I've bought about money, geometry, time, and a couple of other topics.

We finished up rounding to the nearest ten and hundred yesterday (no school today!) and I was looking for a fun review to do before our quiz.  Not finding what I was looking for, I decided to make my own "I have...who has?" game for rounding.  This was the first time our new third graders have played this type of game, and they love competing to try to get the best time out of the four homerooms!

We also just finished the first unit in our reading series (Scott Foresman Reading Street), so to review those past vocabulary words I made another "I have...who has?" game.  We are currently working on nouns, so I chose the vocabulary words that were nouns, and identified them as nouns as part of the game (they can't hear it too much, right?).

If you can use either of these games in your classroom you can download them here from Scribd.  Let me know how it goes if you play the games!
