heads upI am sure that many of you have heard of Ellen’s app titled Heads Up. If not the app costs .99c and is based on the traditional game of charades.!/id623592465?mt=8

This would be a great tool for the classroom particularly now that the app also allows you to purchase  additional categories such as “Just for kids” , fictional characters” and even create your own.

The “create your own” feature could be used with:

1.  Book characters from texts you have read, you could it for

2. Rhyming words, eg the word is cat so you say to the student it is a word that rhymes with hat etc.,

3. This could also be used for Synonyms and Antonyms…

It is really it is only limited to your imagination.
