Who Will Get the Last Word? Classroom Game

When I am planning new classroom games, I am always looking to get the most bang for my buck! I try to create activities that I can use for lots of different skills. This way I only have to teach the game once, but we can play it again and again!


Who Will Get the Last Word? is one of my favorite games! You can use it for spelling, vocabulary, sight words, or even math. It is an easy game to prep, and it really keeps your kiddos engaged!
Before playing the game, you will need some teacher cards. I use a Sharpie Fine Point marker and index cards to make my teacher cards. On each card, write down one word. For example, if you are learning a new spelling pattern, you will need one card for each one of your new spelling words.



When it’s time to start playing, each kiddo will need a dry erase board and a EXPO 2-in-1 Double Sided Dry Erase Marker. You will show them all the words on your teacher cards, and they will write them on their dry erase boards.  They will use one color to write all the words except for ONE! They will choose which word they think will be the “Last Word” and write that word using the opposite side of their markers.


Make sure they only pick one word to write with a different color! It should be easy to see which word they picked as the “Last Word.” Remind your kids that they may not change the color of their words once you start the game.

Once the kiddos have their boards ready, collect all the cards and put them in a cup or basket. Pull out the cards one at a time and give them a clue. If you are practicing a spelling pattern, you might say, cross off “s-t-a-r.” Keep giving clues until you just have one card left.


The children who wrote the “Last Word” with the different color are the winners! You can give them a little treat or reward like stickers or mini-erasers. Once you know how to play, it’s fun to play during lots of different subjects!

  4. Is this game for kids? If so make what's known as the gaming objects so, is the game for adults, if yes then go ahead, add swear words and grotesque violence; but otherwise keep it simple, the best bet is to avoid anything like this because most smart phones are restricted and changing these restrictions can be as equally complicated as designing the games so please for the users avoid any adult content.unblocked games
