So you know the sound.. when you say its time to review for a quiz/test and all of the kids groan and mumble… Not a good sound. This is just one activity I do every now and then to get rid of those awful sounds. I’ve heard it called a few other things but I like to call it a Graffiti Wall.
Basically I have a large pile of dry erase markers out. I give the kids the review topic we’re covering. (In the pictures I told them Geometry and Problem Solving – those were the two topics we were reviewing). I have them think of ANY word they can that associates with those topics. They could think of shapes, vocabulary terms, key words, etc. I call them up 3 at a time. They get to choose their own color and they write their word on the board. Here’s the fun part. They get to write it HOWEVER they want!
