How to Play

Give the students game pieces (from other games or just coins or candy or whatnot).
Place all pieces on start. Have each student roll a die and move forward the number of
spaces they roll. If they land on a positive number, they move that many spaces forward
too. If they land on a negative number, they move that many spaces back. When they
land on a symbol, you ask them a question from the matching question category in the
lesson. (i.e. if they land on a heart, ask an emotion question.) I don't penalize the students
for wrong answers, we just correct the misunderstanding. First one to end wins.

If I have a single child in class, I move a piece as well but the child gets to answer all the
questions. As you can see, this is primarily a way to review the lesson with the students
while they think they are playing. It's also a way to make sure I explained the concepts so
the students could understand. Using different types of questions helps the students who
learn best by non-standard methods of learning (e.g. through movement or emotion).
Older students may want rewards for getting the answer right. Rather than give them an
extra turn, I give them a token. Tokens can be turned in for stickers, pencils etc at a rate
you set.

Below is a description of the types of questions asked, so you can create your own
additional questions.
linguistic questions
e.g. repeat the memory verse, fill in the blank, unscramble, recite
activity questions use spatial, musical, visual and kinesthetic intelligence
e.g. demonstrate an action, draw an element, sing a song, solve a
puzzle, locate an item on a map or picture
emotion questions
e.g. how did the character feel?, what bothered you most?, how would
you have felt?
application questions force students to apply the lesson to their life
e.g. how should we handle the same situation? When have you come
across this circumstance? what could the character have done instead?
Fact questions use memorization and logical-mathematical intelligence
e.g. name 3 of the characters from the story. how many animals did Job
