For the Build Up / Lets communicate sentence structure of    (N) is too (A) to (v), I came up with an Apples to Apples variant idea:

Apples to apples variant game for too…to
(Noun card) is too (adjective) to (verb).

1 Judge per group, 5 players per group. There should be around 10 noun cards per team, 20 verb cards and 20 adjective cards

One noun card is played by the judge. Students in the group must choose one of their verb cards and one of their adjective cards to make a sentence and say that out. The student who creates the best sentence wins a point.

Noun card Yellow paper
Adjective card Red paper
Verb card Green paper

To follow on with the theme of great memories I used this 'What's on my back?' variation. I played this game today and it went wonderfully with all three 3rd grade classes, promoting lots of conversation and laughter.

Each student gets a piece of paper on their back with a description of being somewhere/doing something. They ask yes/no questions to friends to try and find out what is on their back.  First to guess correctly is the winner.  I also allowed 'I don't know' responses but this can get complicated if not monitored.

Example phrases to practice:
Am I ___? (exercising, outside, walking, driving, etc)
Do/Can I ____? (jump, feel cold etc)
Is it in _____? (USA, a boat, the ocean, a famous place etc)

Depending on your class English level, you may have to simplify the sentences a little.  I attached only 6 descriptions and played it in groups of five or six.  These worked well with my students who enjoyed the challenge.

Here's the lesson I'm using for week 2 of this chapter. It's working well so far.
