    Sponges Games
    By 4th grade

    Clip to ScrapBook
    When my students are finished early, we play Sponge Games. It "soaks up" any extra time that I have. I time the students for 1-2 minutes, depending on the topic I give them. I have them write down all of the words they can think of, such as "List all of the verbs that start with a J", "List of the fruits you can think of", and "List all of the animals that have 4 legs". I give a piece of candy to the student who has the most words listed. The students LOVE this game!!! The list of options are endless! It also can relate to any subject area: list all of the rainforest animals, weather words, people of the American Revolution, verbs, adjectives, objects that are spheres, etc. Have fun playing!
