How To Review Material



You just completed a chapter with your class and you need to review it to make sure your students understand it and/or get them ready for a test. What should you do? How can you make it interesting and fun and the students will learn? Try to incorporate a game to review the material in your classroom. There are lots of ways to review. Here is a game I use quite frequently since the students enjoy it so much and it really helps to review what we have been doing in class.


Review Game

The objective of the game is to be the first player to score 10 points. Have a player roll the die on the floor in front of the class. If the die lands on a blank space, they do not answer a question. If the die lands on “?”, they are asked a question by the teacher. If the player answers correctly, they receive a point (you can use tokens, write it on the board, etc.). If they are not correct, they do not receive a point. The first player to score 10 points is the winner. You can play this game individually or in teams. For an added challenge, you can also have “Lose 1 Point” and “Take 1 Point” on a side of the die. When a player rolls “Lose 1 Point”, they must lose 1 point. If a player rolls “Take 1 Point”, they may take a point from any player they choose.

Make a die out of a large juice carton and put a ? mark on some (at least 3) of the sides of the die.

mssscrafts.com- Directions to make die.

Cube Signs- Print, cut out, and glue on die.




Here are some other games that you might find useful:


Baseball

Divide the class into two teams. Establish in the classroom, a first base, second base, third base, and home. Determine in advance how many innings will be played. Team #1 is up at bat first and line up along the chalkboard. The first player is asked a question from the teacher, if they are correct, they advance to first base. If they are incorrect, they go to the end of the line and it counts as an out. The second batter is then asked a different question. Each correct answer allows the batter to advance one base. The game continues like baseball until there are three outs. After three outs, Team #2 has their turn at bat. Whichever team has the most runs, wins.



Basketball

Need: one small ball (or two balled up pieces of paper), two chairs, one trashcan.

Directions: Put a trashcan against a wall. Divide the class into two teams. Have students line up in two teams behind a chair (to keep them from getting too close to basket). Ask the first person in Team #1 a question. If they are correct, they get to try to make a basket. If they make a basket, their team gets a point. If they do not get a basket, their team does not receive a point. After the first player has his turn, he then goes to the end of Team #1’s line. It is now Team #2’s turn. The team with the most points wins.



Tic Tac Toe

This game is for 2 players or you can divide your class into 2 teams. Draw a large tic tac toe grid on the chalk board. Establish which team will be X and which team will be O. Ask Team #1 a question. If they are correct, they get to put an “X” or an “O” on the tic tac toe grid. If a team is unable to answer a question, the other team may have an opportunity to answer it and score an "X" or "O". If no one is able to answer the question, play continues as before. The first player or team to get three in a row wins!



Last Man Standing

All students stand at their desk. Start at the first row and work your way around the room and ask a question to the students. If they answer the question correctly, they remain standing. If they are not correct, they sit down. If they miss the question, anyone from the class can guess. The “Last Man Standing” wins.



Are You Smarter Than A CCD Teacher?

Need: 2 pieces of paper, 2 pencils, coin, chalk board, chalk

Directions: Name a topic/subject that both the CCD Teacher and students are familiar with (this game would be great for a review of a lesson). Give a piece of paper and a pencil to the CCD Teacher and to the students. The students and the teacher will write down 10 questions with answers on their paper about the subject. Flip a coin to find out who goes first. Whoever wins the toss reads a question to the other(s). If they answer correctly, they get the point and someone keeps score on the board. If they are not correct, who ever asked the question gets the point. Continue until all questions have been asked and answered. Whoever has the most points wins.



True or False

Need: 2 containers, one marked T and the other marked F

Ask each student a True or False question. Have the student carry an object and put it into the correct container to answer the question. They can use a large spoon, two chopsticks, salad tongs, an object between their knees and walk with it to the containers and drop it inside, balance it on their nose or on top of their head and drop it into the container, etc.



Bingo- Just Google “Make Your Own Bingo Cards” and find tons of sites to create your own Bingo game.

Life Size Game Boards- The next time you play a game using a game board, do something totally different, try doing a life size game board. You can do them in your classroom, gym, parking lot, field, wherever you have room. It is a great way to review what you do in class!

Free PowerPoint Games- Make your own PowerPoint game (Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?, Password, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Twenty Questions, Guess The Covered Word, variations of the game Hollywood Squares, Weakest Link, Concentration, etc.) to review material and play it with your students.

FREE Catholic Games- Lots of games to review any subject or just change the game to fit your own needs.



The following games are from teachersnetwork.org


Bounce Back

Bounce Back is a game that my student teacher, Russ Deets, and I created one day in desperation, when we decided that our students needed something new and exciting to do. Here is how it works: We divided the class into two groups. The students organized their groups so that each student had a number. Then we asked a question of the first student in group A. That student could answer for 5 points or he/she could bounce the question back to student 1 in group B. The student in Group B (student 1) would either answer for 5 points or bounce it back to student 1 in group A. If student 1 got it right they would get 10 points.

Then the challenge went to the 2nd student in each group – but group B got to start the next time. The kids love the game because they get to take chances, trying to earn more points by “bouncing” the questions back.



Bluff

This is a great game that is also played by many departments in my school. Again the class is divided into two groups. The teacher takes turns giving each group a question. When the teacher gives a question to group A, all the students who think they know the answer stand up. Then, the students in group B get to decide which of the students in group A should answer the question. If the selected student can answer the question, that group gets as many points as the number of people who stood up, but if the student cannot answer the question, then group B gets to answer (any student in that group can answer) and group B will get the same number of points. The fun part of this game is that student try and bluff the other team into thinking that they know the answer so they can push their points up! The teacher then alternates the teams who get to answer the question first.

How To Improve Church & CCD Attendance





Statistics show that church attendance is at its all time low. Some say it is due to difficulty in believing in the existence of God. Others say it is because of the many scandals surrounding the churches in recent years. Then there are some that just say they are just too busy and that they have more important things to do such as their job, work around the house, shopping, sports, relaxing, etc. People think even if they have nothing else to do, the weekend is their only chance to sleep in. To them the day of rest does not include getting up early to attend church.

Some congregations have dwindled because at one time a priest said something to a parishioner that they didn’t like so they never came back. Or the priest was going to transfer to another church and some parishioners leave before they even meet the new priest. Whatever the reason, how to improve church attendance is one of the biggest problems most churches face. Thousands of churches each year have to close their doors forever due to lack of attendance. Churches are frantically trying to come up with ideas and solutions to draw more people into their parish and the CCD program. How should churches proceed with this overwhelming predicament?


Here are a few suggestions that might be useful:



Church


• Advertise in the local paper about your church and the programs it provides. Welcome others to your church and how much the congregation is looking forward to meeting them. Have the advertisement be colorful and enticing to grab anyone’s attention and make them want to come to your wonderful church.

• Put door hangers on homes and leave a positive invitation so others will want to see and be part of your church. Have enlightening and pertinent informative on it that will encourage people to come to your church.

• Tell your current members to invite friends and family. New visitors can become new members and they can also invite others to come to your church.

• Have an Open House so prospective church members can attend Mass and meet the priest and the congregation. Create an uplifting atmosphere that is welcoming and engaging. Encourage members of the church to invite friends to the Open House. Make sure you advertise the event in the local paper and provide refreshments at the gathering.

• Provide food following Mass to build community and relationships. Church goers are more likely to regularly attend your parish if they feel connected to the people of the church. Create a hospitality committee to coordinate refreshments for after the service. You can also hold special fellowship luncheons or dinners once a month. You can use seasonal events, feast days, etc. as themes for your special luncheons or dinners.

• Have a church website. Research has shown that a large percentage of Internet users use the Internet to search for spiritual or religious information, including locating information on churches to visit in their local area. Make sure your church website grabs everyone's attention and informs others of pertinent information about your church and the programs it provides. If money is an issue, you can do a blog and allow several authors to post on the blog about your church and the various activities. Many Internet users visit multiple search engines when looking for a church, so it is important to submit your site to several search engines (Google, MSN, Yahoo, Bing, etc.) to find your church website easily and quickly.

ehow.com- How to Create Your Own Church Site

wikihow.com- How To Create A Church Facebook Page


• Form a Knights of Columbus council at your parish and help make your community a better place, while supporting your Church.

• Have a church meeting and/or survey to ask the people what it is they want or need from your parish. Having an accurate knowledge and understanding of their wants and needs will help guide the church council to decide what changes need to be done at their parish.





CCD

• Write about CCD in every church newsletter or bulletin. Include in it what your class has been doing, what’s coming up, what the children liked and why, perfect attendance, pictures of classroom happenings, samples of student’s work, etc. At every opportunity, remind people of WHY you are doing things a certain way, not just the fact that you're "being creative." The "why" is what is on people's mind when they think about their church. WHY should I do/go/give more.

ehow.com- How To Encourage Sunday School Attendance

What seemed to be the most difficult problem in your CCD class this year?- Tips and Suggestions

CCD Open House- Before CCD starts it is a good idea to have an Open House. The ideas posted should be helpful and allow you to have a great CCD Open House.

Parent Involvement in CCD- Since parents and guardians are the primary teachers of the Faith their involvement in CCD is vital. Without it the child will not learn to their fullest potential. Tips are posted on how to get parents involved in CCD.

Catechist Training- Most dioceses and/or parishes require some kind of catechist training before they can teach a class each year. By providing assistance and training to all catechists before CCD starts it will prepare the catechist so they can be an effective teacher and their students will want to come to CCD. Certified catechist should also participate in the training because no catechist can know everything and they could also benefit from new ideas and activities. Suggestions of what can be in the catechist training is posted.

What do students like to do in CCD?- The key to being a good catechist is knowing what your students like to do in CCD. Here are some tips and suggestions for activities to do in the classroom that are age appropriate.
