Tic-Tac-Toe Circle Terms

3.6 based on 7 ratings

What You Need:

  • Paper
  • Marker
  • Friend

What You Do:

  1. Using the marker, help your child draw a grid 5 x 10 grid consisting of 50 squares on the paper (five squares wide, ten squares long).
  2. Have your child write each of different circle terms 5 different times in the grid.
  3. Then, write the definitions of the terms on a separate piece of paper.
  4. Have the players take turns quizzing one another. One player should read a definition, and the other must guess the circle term that corresponds to the definition.
  5. If a player identifies a circle term correctly, he gets to put an X or an O in one of the five squares containing the corresponding definition.
  6. The rules of the game are similar to Tic-Tac-Toe, but instead of getting three squares in a row, players must get 5 squares in a row.
  7. The child who goes first should pick a term from the list provided and match it to a definition.
  8. Play continues until one of the players has successfully filled in five squares in a row.

Helpful tip: You may want to laminate your grid and use dry or wet erase markers to make this board reusable.
