Today my class played the game 2 Truths and a Lie during reading... using our NOVEL! How novel is that? We are in the midst of Island of the Blue Dolphins - have almost reached the middle. It was a moment that I knew would happen, we needed to get out of our desks and review the story from a vertical, moving position. So I passed out index cards and had my students write 2 true facts from the story and one lie. They tried to be sneaky and mix up the lie vs. the truths. Don't worry, they didn't fool me! :) They had everything under the sun from chapters 1-13. Then they handed them in.
I wrote Truth and Lie on opposite ends of the whiteboard for students to move to either one side of the room or another. Then I started reading one sentence from each card. Oh, the kids had fun moving back and forth across the classroom. Each sentence was followed up by a "voluntold" being asked WHY they knew it was the correct answer.
We LOVED playing this game! What other games do you play during reading?
