Minute to Win it! and classroom management

This year I am experiencing some classroom management issue. The listening skills of my students need a little fine tuning (that is putting it mildly) so I came up with a "game". ..45 minutes to win it. Most of the kids have seen the game show on t.v. and are familiar with the format. This is the 3rd week of the "game" and it is going very well. The empty spots at them bottem are for the names of the kids at the tables (they now have permanent seats). I am not one for rewarding behavior that should be a given, but sometimes you have to do it to keep your sanity!


  1. Good idea - way to change it up! I'm sure the kids will buy into it since it's something they can relate to...

  2. I love this!! Could you send me the file so I can use this in my art class?

  3. This kind of language schools are aimed to keep your children learning about new languages
    as well as cultures. But be sure to have the old removed first; otherwise the new will not come into play.
