Making Inferences STOMP!

Jaime, from What's the Buzz, uses a game called Stomp! with sight words. I made a version to help with making inferences and to keep my first graders moving! Since we are working on our Character Club unit, we are really focused on how our characters are feeling. We are using our schema and the text/pictures to help us. To play, put out 4 - 5 pictures of feelings and have the kids work in teams. They need to take their shoes off. Two players come up and you read from one of the cards. The first player to infer correctly and Stomp the correct feeling wins the round. Thanks for the idea, Jaime! Here is a copy if you are interested!
