Back to Back or Hot Seat to review CCSS

HOT SEAT or BACK TO BACK...have you played it?  We did today!
Two students sit back to back in chairs or on the floor.  Next, choose a topic or concept to review.  Quickly ask them questions about the topic or concept.  For example-Plants- What part holds the plant in the ground?  What part makes food for the plant? etc.  I aso choose math topics-subtraction and addition facts, turn around facts, double facts, even and odd, adding and subtracting 10, 5, 100, and place value.   Social studies topics can also be used- Who is our President?  How many continents are there?  I also use English topics-Name a verb.  What comes on the end of this sentence (How old am I?)? What type of sentence is this (Sit down.)?   etc.  Of course, I through in random questions-How old are you?  What is your first name?  How many letters are in your first name?

THEY LOVED HOT SEAT-IT WAS THE HOT GAME OF THE DAY!!!!

If you play it, let me know how and what your students think of the game!

Smiles!
