SAT I Verbal Student Links

Attribute: rules cards star/stop  To play Attribute, print my cards on one color paper and my star/stop on another color. Each player takes four adjectives (you may need to look up meanings and write them on the back) and one star/stop.  Then the first player names something like "A month old banana" or "the US president."  If you have a star, match it so another player picks you, if you have a stop, put down a card that doesn't describe the item, so you don't get picked.   In the official rules, star/stops are red and green sheep.

Scoring: My red ship doesn't get tagged, I get a point.  My green sheep doesn't get tagged, I lose a point.  I tag a green sheep, I get a point; I tag a red sheep, I lose a point.  Playing for points is optional.

The Storytelling Game:  Deal SAT vocabulary flash cards to each person.  Make sure there are plenty of synonyms.  Someone starts telling a story.  As he uses the words in his hand, he can discard them.  As soon as he says any word (on a card or not) that's a synonym to a word in someone else's hand, they can discard that card and take over as the new storyteller.  The former storyteller draws one card.  Whoever uses up all their cards first wins. 

Note: SAT vocabulary flash cards are inexpensive and can be used in both games.  I recommend asking your parents for them-- many parents would be thrilled to have their children asking for vocabulary flashcards to help them learn.  And, hey, the fact that the games are fun makes this a very effortless way to learn.  Both games work well with up to 8 or so people.
