I Have, Who Has Confession

Linking up with Holly!

I have a confession...

Yesterday was the first time I have EVER tried an 'I have, who has' game. I know, I know. I can see the mortification on your face through your screen.

I will say that I LOVED it and so did my students. Absolutely will try it again. We are still in the middle of figurative language and my kids are loving idioms so I used Mr. Hughes' set of cards. It was so much fun! I loved that his cards came in different sizes.

I am finished confessing and absolutely hooked to 'I have, who has' games. Please leave me some suggestions of some good ones. Happy Tuesday!


  1. Ahhhh I love "I have, who has" games! I have made them for every science chapter that I cover! They are a great way to review!

  2. So glad you tried it and that your kiddos liked it! I know mine love it as well. I tend to do it as a review.

  3. It's funny how much the kids love the "I Have Who Has" cards - at least my kiddos last year begged for them which I never though would happen in grade six and seven! I sometimes use them at as an intro (schema) before teaching something related!

  4. Oh yes, and I'm a new follower :) I love your blog design!

  5. I found you through Holly's linky- I'm a new follower! I've nver thought of doing an I Have, Who Has with figurative language...that's great!!!

  6. I love confessions...haha!! I can only imagine how many I have:) For "I have, who has," sometimes if I only have 10 words or so, we play in teams and time the teams to see which one can finish the fastest after a practice round! A little competition really makes it fun:)

  7. I still have never tried them either. There are so many things I want to try.
