Tutor Time Activity – There Can Be Only One

November 5, 2011

Here’s another tutor time activity I’m going to try with my tutees.

As usual, I’d like to know:
  1. Are the instructions clear enough?
  2. Is the scoring clear enough?
  3. What year group you tried this with.

And, What categories do you think would work well? Did any of these categories not work?

    Thanks for putting this up. I tried this with KS2 (Yr 3), and since I ignored your instructions, feel free to ignore this comment! But it didn’t work quite as well as I’d hoped – the game itself was great for getting everyone involved, but it takes a *long* time to work through the answers as a whole class – and I suspect you need a certain critical mass of students to generate duplicate answers. In about 8 minutes, we managed 2 rounds, so I’d probably opt for something a little more quick-fire next time. Thanks anyway, it was def. worth a try.

    Hi Mat,How many were in your class? I find that with a little training it doesn’t take *too* long to get through them all.The way to get more duplicates is to narrow the options down.The ones about a number under 20 or a UK coin/note denomination gets lots of duplicates for example and also seem more impressive if someone actually does score a point.Still, useful feedback. Thanks,

    31 in the class – I did run through the 'numbers under 20', being a category that my Year 3s could scrawl most quickly on a whiteboard! I'm sure you're right that in time they'd get a little quicker at reading out their answers, and I like the game enough to give it another shot at some point.??
