I have made it my mission to find ways to get my high school students up and out of their seats (in a positive manner!) during class. I’ve recently created a new game, which combines elements of Pictionary and charades. I call it: The Word Wall Games! It’s available in my TpT store now! It can be played with individual vocabulary lists or teacher provided lists.
Teams earn points as they try to ACT IT OUT! DRAW IT OUT! OR MASHUP! There’s very little teacher preparation needed. Just have your students gather their vocabulary lists, make teams, and have fun!
I've been teaching for over 25 years. I've taught at the elementary level, but I'm currently teaching high school English including AP Language and Composition.
I’ve recently opened a Teachers Pay Teachers store:

I'm a self-taught artist and I strive to incorporate the arts in my teaching whenever I can. I believe our students need more chances to stretch their creative thinking skills.
One of my current goals is to incorporate a makerspace in my classroom. I want to give students the opportunity to work with their hands in the English classroom.
