Hi Everyone,

I have been doing some trial-and-error with other teachers.

I. Among the best games we see are:

1. Battleship

(Students get given number of chances to answer correct review question; they play against the Teacher to sink games, like traditional battleship).

2. Star Slayer

If a student gets a question correctly, they get to throw the sticky ball to drawn targets on the whiteboard. Hitting different targets gets different point value.

https://www.google.com/search?q=sticky+ball&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi8-bLGjMXgAhWZGDQIHWg2BGcQ_AUIDygC&biw=2048&bih=1005

II. Purpose

The students review this way, and never seem to get tired of playing.

Any other home run activities that students really enjoy?

Happy to order toys, etc.

Not really toys, but if you have the tech, Kahoot is great https://kahoot.com/

For younger kids at lower levels, you can do a lot with packs of 'Happy Families'. It's worth having the proper cards, rather than playing 'Go Fish', because you can practice relationship vocabulary as well.
