After we created the list of questions, I created a scorecard for the students to use: not only to organize their thinking, but to get them reading the questions without the support of the images I added for comprehension. The scorecard was a table that I filled with the questions, and a box to check or "x" depending on the question and answer. We had 2 answers for the grade 4 classes (Oui ou non), and 4 for the grade 5s (oui, non, peut etre, et parfois.)
For the "headbands," I used some dollar store sunglasses with velcro dots attached to them. Then each of the pictures had velcro on the back so students can swap the pictures in between turns.

When we moved to the independent practice, students played the game in groups of 4 or 5. There was quite the buzz in the class, students were really enjoying it! While the students played the game, I circulated and assessed their progress.
Again, it was great to see the students using gestures, and other speaking strategies that they had learned earlier in the year!

I have used post-it notes to play a version of this game with some of my older classes. I opted for this picture-based version for my younger students to ensure a level of success.

If you would like to make your own, here are the files that I made for the game. Feel free to download and print!
Celebrity cards: (I printed two sizes, 1 collage per page for the anchor charts and 2 collages per page for the playing cards.) Download here (page 1). And here (page 2).
Scorecard worksheet: I printed it for the students to consult when they played and to track their thinking. Download here (PDF).
