My first Grade students have started learning how to conjugate a few simple verbs so I created a game of Guess Who/What Am I using a powerpoint and verb/adj/noun table.
You can personalise the teachers' names and the high school to your own.
The first three clues are for the class to play against you. This will get them warmed up and help them understand how to use the table. Then, put them into small teams, each with their own whiteboard. Send one person from each team out of the classroom and show the remaining students the first slide. Help them make up some clues for the first slide e.g. 'you are a person 'you are American' etc. Bring the students back into the classroom and give them 30 seconds to provide clues to their teammate. After 30 seconds, the student has to write down what or who they think 'they are' e.g. 'I am President Trump'. Points go to teams who get the correct answer. After each round, get the students to raise their hand and tell you some of the clues they gave. More points go out for these answers. Stickers at the end for the winning team! It is fun, some are a bit silly and it gets them thinking a bit more laterally.
Accompanied writing task at the end.
