It’s such a waste of time to use an amazing activity in an ELA lesson and then forget about it. Why spend all of that time and energy creating it, only to use it once? Not to mention the time you spend explaining the process to your students. Why not reuse the activity all year long? We like to call this process rinsing and repeating. It is a super effective way to keep your students engaged while ensuring they are mastering the standards and concepts being taught. In today’s video, I’m talking all about 3 ways to play one ELA game, so you can rinse and repeat it all year long!
