  1. These vids are priceless, thanks so much (whose classroom is playing in the 3rd video?) for posting.
    I’m wondering which details can be streamlined to make this feasible in an elementary classroom? I think the part that would be hardest is for the judges to hold onto who raised hand 1st/2nd/3rd. Since I have small groups (under 20 in most cases) maybe they can be in more of a horizontal row to see the volunteer answer group order better…anyone with suggestions about how to simplify details please suggest away! This is a hoot of a way to gamify and infuse collaboration for comprehension checks. Perhaps awesome for checking the teamwork box on eval forms too?

  2. On the judging of which group got their hands up first, you are so much taller that when the kid judge hesitates you overrule and pick any group and they can’t tell. Being a foreign language teacher means we have to learn how to fudge things. I am sure that everyone in this group knows that. (This is especially true of grading.)

  3. Hello, we can fudge in ANOTHER LANGUAGE. And need I remind you – this is America. So pretty much no one has any idea…

  4. Tina, these are good updates for me: “It’s new to me!” — Hands up in complete unison AND getting students heads together to make the meaning clear to them.

    Whoa, Whoa — Skeeball!? Nice! What will the prizes be? Sounds like your class is having some good ‘ol elective style fun.

  5. Do the “judges” also play? If so, how do they get their heads together and watch the others at the same time? If they do not play, do they get to play the next time?

  6. No they never play and they don’t want to. They are so tired of being overshadowed. Now they have the spotlight. Finally.

    Then watch in stories during class. Their attitude will shift. It is bc they know you like them.
