Next Word Up

Enlarge a SM card and cut it up into each individual word. (Or cut up the large poster if you are done with it).

Place the individual words of a SM on a table. Everyone surrounds the table. Teacher reads the SM stopping suddenly mid-sentence. The students try to be the 1st person to grab the piece of paper with the next consecutive word of the scripture. If they guess correctly, they keep the paper. If they choose poorly, they simply put the word back on the table. If there are 2 instances of that particular word, both papers with that word written on can be taken. The person with the most pieces of paper wins. (Make two copies and place them on two separate tables to play in teams.)

Have students take turns being the “reader” so they get practice saying the SM.
