GadZooks! is a witty word game to play at home or in the classroom. It’s a board/style game played similarly to Apples to Apples. Participants come up with an example of the literary device (from the square they land upon) using a word(s) from the cards in their hand.
Designed by Montessori teachers and their students to help you practice and remember some of the different types of literary devices. These include: Hyperboles, metaphors, personification, alliteration, onomatopoeias and similes.
Remember, the first player to the center wins and can jump up and proclaim, “GadZooks!”
Grumble not, caregivers! All g.s learning resources are both student and peer reviewed for continual updates. They are based on skill sets given priority by our Common Core Standards in areas where students might need a bit more reinforcement and practice.
As for me? Since 2006, I’ve accumulated 12+ years of experience as a Montessori public school upper elementary teacher (ages 8-12). During those years, I worked hard to build an inclusive learning environment, honoring & embracing diversity. Many of these lessons have been developed over more than a decade of teaching, reflecting student interest and feedback.
Now, I’m here to help you at home. Regards, -Grumble
