The first team that gets it, raises their hands and I say first place, then second place, and so on.
The rule is, though, that no child may touch someone elses alphabet cards. Each child is in charge of their own cards and must pay attention. This keeps every child involved! We also play a game called Judge. We play this sometimes right before the test. I choose one child to be the Judge and they go outside the classroom. Jen I always use an interactive game.

You change the word back and give the students as a whole a point. If they are wrong, YOU get the point.
