Squares Game: Christmas Version!

The Halloween and regular Squares games were a huge hit.  So here’s a fantastic Christmas version!

As usual the cool thing is that it lets you review lots and lots of lessons without needing lots and lots of printing!

1. Place, face down, several mini cards for themes you wish to review on each of the large coloured squares.
2. Every player has a counter or token.
3. One player rolls a die (or two dice if you want the game to go more quickly.)
4. They move their counter that number of spaces.
5. When they stop their counter on a square they pick up a mini card from the same coloured large square.
6. If they can say the phrase/word on the mini card they can stay there. If not they have to move back to where they came from.
7. Watch out for the bonus “go back” and “go forward” cards.
8. First person to land exactly on the Merry Christmas square is the winner!
Of course the Christmas lessons are the best ones to use here.

Which will you choose colours, shapes, prepositions, body parts, winter clothes, decorations or any of the others?

(Wow, there’s almost a whole curriculum of Christmas topics!)
Do let us know what you think of the game in the comments!

Hello, I'm Richard Graham. When I was a kid I found school to be sooooo boring... So I transformed my way of teaching. I listened to what the kids were really wanting to say and taught it in ways they really wanted to learn. The results were magical. Now I help teachers just like you teach amazing lessons and double your incomes!
