I checked and I'm pretty sure that I'm the last person on the planet who does not know how to play this game.

It's w/flashcards, isn't it?

Will you please tell me how to play this game?

TIA!

There are different variations, but here's how I play. Student A stands behind student B's chair, and they are the only 2 contestants. Hold up and say the fact on the flashcard. The first student who answers correctly moves on behind student C's chair. If student B was faster, I have student A sit down in student B's chair. You continue, each time with the faster student moving on. The goal is to get "around the world" or around the whole classroom. I give a piece of candy or a school dollar (for our school store) to anyone who moves at least 5 seats. They love this game.

We play similar to roo. The winner of our game is the person who makes it back to their seat first, they have succesfully made it "around the world". I use it with reading vocab, but DH uses it with math facts. The kids love it no matter how you play!

I play the same way others have mentioned. We play with sight words and math facts. However, to maintain engagement throughout the whole class (those waiting for their turn), I give each student a whiteboard and they have to write down answers while the players answer.

I even did it in kindergarten, using letters, numbers, math facts and pictures (for beginning sounds). They always loved it.
