I am a first year teacher, teaching 5th grade this year. I am looking for ideas for review games that your students like. Especially to review before math tests.

We divide up into teams quite a bit.
One game we do this we is connect four. There is a black team and a red team. If you answer a question correct you get to put your checker into a slot, but you have to build from the bottom up just like in connect four.
Another game we do is tic tac toe. I again break them into two teams. X's and O's. I put out 9 chairs. If they answer a question correct they get to go sit down in any chair. Some times they really have good strategies.
Another game is the powerpoint presentations you can download free on the internet. Jeopardy, who wants to be a millionare, are you smarter than a 5th grader.
Also we play around the world with math flashcards.
For spelling they like spelling basketball or sparkle.

I changed it to 4th grade and use it for aims prep. The kids love it, we use touch lights as our buzzer. They have a 4 pack for about 7 bucks at walmart and it comes with batteries.

I play a lot of review games w/ my fifth-graders. For spelling, "Sparkle" is always a favorite; we also modify 7-Up to fit a review (before they guess who put their thumb down, they have to answer a question or spell a word correctly). I split them into teams and use whiteboards (one per team) to review and tally the points. We do spelling relay on the bb; they like to do boys vs. girls. I use Bingo to review for vocabulary words; also, a popular review game for vocab. is Concentration (matching); I print the words and definitions on paper and then put them on the bb w/ magnets. When it is time to review for mid-terms, I make up a Jeopardy game, with various subjects/skills. That goes over really well. And my piece-de-resistance, so to speak, is my "Deal or No Deal" game - I play it with unit reviews mostly; the kids LOVE it - they pretty much freak out. That takes some prep time and organization (it would take too long to explain here).

I try to do a few review games every week; it breaks things up a little, and they are still learning, while having fun.

Bingo and Others

Bingo can be used as an excellent review type game even for math especially if your students are having trouble with some math terms or multiplication facts.

Tic Tac Toe is another good game.
You can come up with a series of questions that you want to ask divide the class up into two teams. Once you divide them up, you assign one side as the x's and one as the o's.
Call on one team at a time if they get a chance they get to put down an x or o for their side.
The team who gets three in a row first just like the regular tic tac toe game wins.
You can play that as long as you have questions.

If you can't think of enough questions you can have each of your students submit one question a piece, with the answer.
Use their questions in the game as well.
You can actually assign the one question they are to come up with for homework.

Here are three suggestions:
1. create PowerPoint review games.
http://jc-schools.net/tutorials/PPT-games/
http://teach.fcps.net/trt14/Power%20...oint_games.htm
http://teach.fcps.net/trt10/PowerPoint.htm

2. Create reviews for your class using Hot Potatoes.
http://hotpot.uvic.ca/
Here is a sample from my class page:
http://flores.ljisd.com/www/lajoya_f...6wksReview.htm
3. quia.com has lots of reviews made by teachers for almost everything you can think of. I have made several reviews and games along with adding what others have done. Here is my class web site for quia: http://www.quia.com/pages/floreselem.html

Hope this helps.

I would be very interested in learning more of your "Deal or No Deal", if you'd be willing.
