Our Review Week is coming up soon. We ALWAYS have a BIG REVIEW at the end of a QUARTER. I normally PULL out something from each PAST lesson to display on REVIEW SUNDAY. I will post pics of our REVIEW SUNDAY soon.
But, in preparation for REVIEW Sunday, I made a simple and yet FUN Review Game for the KIDDOS. I was reminded about these easy to make Card Chutes while cruisin on Pinterest. I had FORGOTTEN all about these... The funny thing is, I remember making these way back when I was in the Third Grade. (Thank to Mrs. McMillan.) When we made these were used them to practice our Times Tables!!! However, we will be using THIS Milk Carton Card Chute to Review Bible Questions on the First Three Kings of Israel!
The construction of this is fairly easy...and if you are a follower on Pinterest just look at my board on Bible Class...I pinned the instructions on the construction of the Chute there. To make the chute you will need, a Carton, Cardstock, and Tape or Glue. You can cover your Chute with Paper, Duct Tape, Paint, Contact Paper, etc. Then print out or hand write your QUESTION cards. Making sure the cards will fit through the chute. I hand wrote the answers on the back of each card with a sharpie...I have not mastered the double sided printing thing to well, yet!! :)
BTW, I think this would make a great EAA.
To use this REVIEW Game I let the children "draw" a card from the box....then they had to tell me the answer...place it in the Chute and see if they were right. If they did not know the answer then all the KIDDOS would "help" the one that did not know the answer...and then check to see if they were correct. The KIDDOS love any type of REVIEW that is NOT just me asking questions...and this seems to give them OWNERSHIP of their REVIEW...They pull the question card. They answer. They check. (I do have to help with reading the cards for my KIDDOS that are not reading yet.)
Another GREAT thing about this REVIEW GAME.....My family is taking a VACATION!!!! We are going to Myrtle Beach, SC. This makes an EASY GAME for my substitute teacher to play with the KIDDOS. Plus there are TONS of REVIEW Questions. I love REVIEWS that are fun...and they help me know if the KIDDOS are MISSING anything from their understanding of past lessons. It is a great way to show me what I need to "RECOVER," "REEXPLAIN," or "REEMPHASIZE," before we MOVE on to "NEW" material.
How this works: Put Card in top of Chute....And it will SLIDE out the bottom with the Answer Showing.

Hope you are having a WONDERFUL Summer.
