Alphabet Attack!
« on: September 14, 2010, 03:06:29 pm »
Alphabet Attack is a speaking game based off of battleship.  Instead of having students draw ships, I have students draw a letter of the alphabet using the squares.  Then they play the game just as they would battleship.

Students keep track of their hits and misses on a smaller "Friend's Board" next to their own board.  For misses, they can draw an X.  For hits, they can shade in the square.  The game is over when they can guess their friend's letter, or whenever you say it is!

Here are two examples.  The first I used to practice tag questions in middle school.  The second was to practice general questions for third and fourth grade elementary school students.  I always print my worksheets two sheets to a page to save paper, so they are formatted for that.

As they keep track of their hits on their "Friends Board" which is a second grid included on their worksheet, the shaded in boxes will start to form the shape of their friend's letter.  It follows the same rules as battleship.

First, each student draws a letter on the main grid, then game play begins.
Based on the provided worksheet, if student A says: "Do you have a sister?" and B says "Yes", they would shade in the box.  If B said "No", they would write an X.  And so on...
