What it is: Lakeshore is an educational store here in the states. Today they posted links to some free language game downloads for 1st-6th grade. The downloads are for an I have/Who has card game. For grades 1-2 you will find a beginning sounds game, for 3-4 a fact and opinion game, and for 5-6 a parts of speech game.
How to integrate I have/ Who has into your curriculum: The I have/Who has card games are a fun way for students to practice a skill as a whole class. Students sit or stand in a circle. One student begins by reading the statement on their card. For example, one student might read “I have: Candy tastes sweet. Who has an opinion about birds.” The student whose card has an opinion statement about birds answers “I have: Flamingos are the prettiest bird. Who has a fact about exercise?” Play continues until all the cards have been matched. I like the I have/Who has games because they require every student to be actively listening and involved in game play. The game also gives opportunity for the class to discuss why an answer is correct or incorrect.
