This is a good game for kids under age 7. Take a list of new words, and write each one down on a square of paper. Tape the papers onto the walls of the classroom in random places. Then all the kids line up at the door and when the teacher shouts the word, the first kid to run to the paper with the word on it gets a point. This is fun because the kids need to let off steam. I switch the papers around each time, so they have to learn the words instead of the classroom locations.
This also works with math. For my rowdy boys, I post numbers around the room, and then on the white board I write simple equations and whoever runs to the answer first wins.
