This is not my idea but I thank the teacher who's it is. In a large class,
I have four teams. One student from each team goes to the blackboard
where I have divided four spaces with a new and interesting team
name. Team names usually come from "everyday english" in their town,
like car names, store names, etc. I then dictate sentences from their
text book and the first student to write it on the blackboard is
the super secretary winner and that team gets a star. This is great
review practice for students, especially near exam time. Everybody in
the class gets to play. It reinforces text book lessons, listening
ability, and spelling. There is often great excitement and
competition. I am using this in a Middle school.
