Multiple Meaning and Antonym Battle Speech Game

I have used these sheets a variety of ways. I have paired kids up and they each get two sheets; one of the sheets they mark their ships out and the other one they keep track of their guesses against their partners. The other way I have done it is playing it as a large group. Then the kids get a point for each hit they make. I have included a sheet that we did this on. They get one point for a hit and two points for a sink. The person in charge of the game marks the initials of the kids' hits and points. See above example. Then the one with the most point in the end wins the game. You could make these games with a variety of sounds so that a group can work on it, or you could have them produce sentences with their sounds in it if your groups are at that level. I have used them with antonyms, synonyms, irregular past tense, irregular plurals, and vocabulary words also. As you see they outline their ships before the game starts. Then they mark the misses with 0's and the hits with X's. I am sure you can figure out other ways to do it also. My students tend to like the one leader everyone plays method because the games go faster. I find it easier to keep track of data this way also.
