In the politically correct environment of the 21st Century, teachers are coming under fire for doing and saying things in the classroom that previously did not cause any problems. I know a teacher who was reprimanded for playing the classic game Hangman in her class, because a parent thought that the image of a stick figure being hung was inappropriate. It was brought to the attention of the principal, and the entire school was forbidden to play Hangman. While I think that this reaction is a little extreme, I can understand the parent's objection. Lynching was a dark and terrible part of our country's history, and anything that evokes that awful time should be avoided at all costs.

Another Version of a Popular Game

Luckily, I have a simple solution to the 'hangman issue.' About ten years ago, when I was teaching fourth grade, a student suggested a new way to play the game. One of the boys in my class raised his hand and said, 'Mr. Harrison, instead of playing Hangman, I think we should play Snowman. It's a nicer way to play.' He told us that the game was played by adding a snowball to a figure each time a guess was incorrect.


How Snowman is Played


He was right! In the game of Hangman, when a child misses a letter of the secret word, you draw a circle (representing the head) in the noose. That's followed by a long stick (the body), two sticks (the arms), two sticks (the legs), two eyes, and a sad face. That's a total of nine mistakes. When you play Snowman, for the first incorrect answer the lower (and biggest) snowball is drawn, for the second the middle snowball is added, and for the third a snowball is added at the top (the head of the snowman). After that, the snowman gets two sticks (the arms), a top hat (like the one Frosty the Snowman wears), two eyes, and a sad face. Voila! Nine mistakes!

By the way, Snowman can also be played in the Wheel of Fortune format. Instead of having to guess a word, students have to figure out a multi-word phrase. For example:

_ / _ _ _ _/ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _/ _ _/ _ _ _ _ _/ _ _/ _/ _ _ _ _/ _ _/ _ _ _ _ _ _ _!

The answer to the above is “I love stumping my class in a game of Snowman!”

Snowman is a game that should be played in schools. Kids love it, and it’s a great sponge activity that takes up those interminable three or four minutes before recess. Additionally, you can play games of Snowman 'for points.' If the class guesses the word, or phrase, they earn points. If they don't, you get the points.

In this simple, yet effective, lesson plan, early readers play a matching game with sight words. Each word is written on an index card, and students match the word that's been turned over with the correct word in their pile of index cards. This lesson can be done with a whole group, small group, or in a literacy center.

Although not a game, this lesson utilizes the classic 'Mad Libs' technique to reinforce the use of adjectives in writing. Students use a sample story embedded in a lesson, which is missing the adjectives. Partners work together to create a list of adjectives, then insert them into the story. A humorous result usually occurs. This is a fun lesson!

This engaging lesson has students work in groups. Each group has sections of a newspaper. The teacher calls out the definition of one of the weekly spelling words, and the students work together to spell out and glue down that word as quickly as they can. The team that is first to glue down the word, correctly spelled, earns a point. The team with the most points at the end of the period is declared the winner.

In this lesson, student teams use the online resource '100 Amazing Earth Facts' to learn some very interesting facts about Earth. Then, they play a Jeopardy-like trivia game to see which team has learned the most facts. This clever lesson can be used with third grade and above!

This is version of the classic letter guessing game called Hangman. You are shown a set of blank letters that match a word or phrase and you have to guess what these letters are to reveal the hidden word. You guess by picking letters from those displayed on the sides. If you pick a letter that is in the word, a sound is played and that letter is revealed from the blank letters; however, if you pick a letter that is not in the word, then a stickman is slowly drawn. With each wrong letter guess, the man is drawn more and more. When the man is finished, he is hung and the game is lost. This is why the game is called 'Hangman'. If you can reveal all the letters in the word before the man is hung then you are successful and the full word is revealed along with an image showing the meaning of the word. An audio clip should also play if it has been loaded.

The letters are in 2 sets: vowels appear on the left and the consonants on the right. In order to make the game easier, wrong guesses from vowels do not count as mistakes and do not draw the man. So it is advisable to click on all the vowels first. If you prefer to make thing harder, you can change this setting by clicking on the settings button.

As with other games you can choose the content that you wish to use. There is a content selection screen just before the game starts. It has 30 different sets of content, including things like food, jobs and sports. Some content sets are easier than others - the colors and numbers are really quite simple to guess; alternatively, jobs and garden items are longer and difficult. While each set of content has about 25 items, only 16 are used in any one game. This is to keep the game from getting too long/boring and also to exclude some of the more uncommon items.

There is also an option to review the vocabulary items. At the first screen, if you click on the 'Review' button, then you can select any set of content and scroll through to see each image and see how it is spelt. It is quite hard to learn how to spell a word just from guessing letters and so perhaps it is a good idea to review the items from a set before trying the game.
