Choose four related (or not) vocabulary terms and assign one to each student. Students should hold pictures (pre-made or student-created) of the vocabulary term that they represent in front of them so that you can identify at a glance which student represents which term. You could also sentences and describe to students the order in which they occurred (it could get silly!). This would be a great way to get additional reps on a familiar story. In the past, I have used “unicorn, monster, werewolf, and dinosaur”.
Assign one term or sentence each to A, B, C, and D, and then fill in the blanks of all of the line-ups that you plan to use (this will make it so you do not have to think so hard later on).
Read each new piece of information to the students slowly, allowing them to think through it before adding the next piece of information and re-adjusting their line-up. Check answers at the end.
