Shout Out is a no-prep game that can be used when students are in need of a break and need to release some energy. Games such as this one, although loud, are possible to do in a controlled way that will help students focus on the next task. You will find more ‘brain break’ activities here.
This activity is very simple. First, the teacher calls out a letter and students have to say or shout (or even whisper!) a word with that letter. The student who says the word first gets a point (or other reward).
