This is a fun way to get students to retell stories.  I learned this from some NNELL friends at a conference a few moons ago. They were using it to review vocabulary. This works great after telling stories. I have used it with my students and they love it!

You will need:

  1. Masking tape or a marker to create your tic-tac-toe board.
  2. Place pictures from your stories on the board.

Playing the game:

  1. Divide the class into two teams
  2. Take turns to retell the story using sentences or simple words.
  3. Each team places a card on the board after saying a word or a sentence related to the story. Students can help each other!
  4. The team to get three cards in a row wins the game.

In Colombia 🇨🇴 we call this game “triqui”. What do you call this game?
