One of the biggest challenges teachers face nowadays is keeping students motivated to learn. Games can be an engaging, interactive and effective way for students to reflect on their learning. Participating in games allow students to demonstrate their knowledge of content in an enjoyable manner. When students are simultaneously playing and learning, you can't go wrong!
For that reason, the freebie I'm offering to you is my set of Story Spinner games that can be used with fictional and informational texts. The freebie includes 4 game boards- a simple and more detailed version used with fictional and informational texts. The Story Spinners meet a few strands of the CCSS requirements, are easy to assemble and can be placed in a literacy center. In addition, they allow for some flexibility, grouping-wise. Students can work independently (responding in a journal), with a partner or in a small group. Click HERE to download your freebie.

Now, continue on the literacy freebie path and head over to Mrs. Beers' Language Arts Class to meet Erin and see what she has to offer.
Enjoy your weekend!
