Verb Viper Smartboard Game

verb viperVerb Viper helps students practice their verb tenses, verb forms, and subject/verb agreement, with an added challenge of having to try to get as many correct answers as they can before the time runs out, while also struggling to read and think fast enough to get the correct answer.

Before the game starts, the teacher has the option to choose what type of verbs forms to practice, as well as the game’s difficulty. During the game proper, a subject (or subjects) is displayed on top of the viper’s head. If the verb in the “strike zone” box matches with the subject, the player must either click the screen or tap on the spacebar. However, beware with the verbs’s scrolling speed – every time a verb passes through the strike zone, whether or not it is correct, the subject instantly changes. So it’s a constant battle of quickly reading the subject and immediately judging if the upcoming verb is correct.

At the end of each of the game’s six levels, it shows the player’s accuracy for that stage, along with both his correct and incorrect answers. When all six levels are done, the player is presented with a certificate which the teacher can print if he wishes.

It would take a while to complete, but teams of six can play this, with one student playing per stage. After everybody in each team had played, their accuracies per level are tallied and averaged. The team with the highest average score wins.

Rhyming Words Smartboard Game

Rhyming WordsHelp a child named Max cross the river by choosing the correct stepping stone/log/water lily (depending on the game’s difficulty level).

Each of the river object is associated with a word. The object that can hold Max’s weight – and can thus send him across – contains the word that rhymes with another given word. Choose the wrong word, however, and Max falls into the river!

Two groups of players can compete to see who can get the correct rhyming word first. There are only five steps, so this ensures that the game cannot end with a tie. Alternatively, it can also be a race to the finish – which team can get across with the least amount of tries?

Word Magic Smartboard Game

Word MagicHow many words can your students form from the ones given in the box?  Do they have a huge enough vocabulary to form complex words that would give them higher points? Are they fast enough to fill up their word list before the clock runs out… and before a rival student group steals their letters?

Word Magic is reminiscent to the classic Boggle game, except that the letters forming the words do not have to be adjacent to each other.  When the player forms his word and clicks on the “GO” button, the chosen letters are then replaced with others.

Though the game can be played in single player mode (where a student, or a group of students, try to collect enough points from their words within the given time), it also has a multiplayer mode, where the game automatically matches your students against other players from another class… or school… or even another country! The multiplayer game is then played in real time, where students race to use a letter before their rivals do; if they did end up using the same letter, the points for the word is forfeited!

How good is your class against what could possibly be the world? Perhaps a tournament could be arranged to find out!

Spin and Spell Smartboard Game

Spin and SpellA spelling game reminiscent of popular  TV game shows, where players are asked to correctly spell the variety of objects provided on-screen by clicking on the appropriate alphabets on the letter wheel.

The objects to be displayed are sorted into five different categories.  The item to be spelled can either be randomly chosen by the game (provided by a button below), or can be chosen by the students.  The latter option makes classroom play possible: at the start, the teacher picks an object and have one of his students spell it. After his attempt – where a correct answer gives him a point – the student can then choose another object, and hands the turn over to one of his classmates.  This can continue until everyone in the room has had several turns, after which all the points are tallied up to determine who is the class’ spelling champion!
