One of my grade 1 classes is obsessed with Jenga.
Personally I am not really that keen on the game as it takes so loooooong to play, requires masses of patience and you have to be very calm and careful. Absolutely not something that appeals to me at all.
But they love it and will read any number of flashcards, answer any number of questions and write any number of letters (as in ABC not Dear Mum...- we're not that advanced!) for a chance to play Jenga.
And, as before you move a piece you have to answer a question/ ask a question/ read a flashcard, it's a good revue game.
And today even I got excited.
We built a super Jenga tower.
And practiced- your turn, my turn, this one, not that one, slowly! and be careful! While we did it.
Before I submit this to the Guinness World Book I thought I'd share it here:
Do we rock or what, huh?
(Yes, I lead a very un-exciting life...)
