Hot Seat!

 Have you heard of the game Hot Seat? I learned it a few years ago from a first grade teacher I worked with and introduced it to my first graders this week. We played it when we had an extra 5 or 10 minutes during our last week of school {side note: finally!!!} and they absolutely loved it!

Here's how we played:
One person was chosen to sit in the "hot seat" with their back to the whiteboard, facing the rest of the class. 
I then wrote a word on the whiteboard. The students sitting on the carpet had to read it in their minds and not shout it out {that took a few practice rounds ;)}
The object of the game is to get the person in the hot seat to guess the word by giving them clues about the word. For example, I wrote the word "flag" and one student said "ours is red, white and blue". The person in the hot seat has 5 chances to guess the word. I was really impressed with my students' clue giving abilities! They are very smart!

Also, school's out for summer!!!! Yay!!!
