Writing and Word Chunk Team Game!

We went to the library to add another ten minute quick write (a fluency write) to our portfolios.  Then we came back home and played the Word Chunk Team Game.  I love that game because it is EASY!  All I do is sit back and speak chunks of words in L2.  The kids run the whole game!  I love it!  Ben Slavic you have saved my sanity!

The WCTG is the greatest invention since I don’t know what.  I am inclined to believe it actually predates sliced bread.  Maybe only Silent Ball can compare for sanity savers for busy teachers.
