Took me a minute to figure out how this works, once I did it was so easy. Kids genuinely enjoyed doing this and sharing their cases. Easy to use, even with just a few extra minutes.

Go-to Tool

The first time I tried to play this with my students I realized they were not certain if the phrases answered a who, what, where, or when question. So, while we couldn't play the game as intended, it opened a whole new window of insight into my students' struggles with reading. I adapted how I use the tool to suit my students' needs and they love it! It is one of my go-to tools.
