Our favorite review game that works at home AND at CC:
I wrote #1- #7 on the sticks for the appropriate weeks, and then I picked ONE category (History was first). At home I let my boys pick one stick each at a time, we did the history sentence that went with the week # they picked, and then I let them put a piece of Mr. Potato head on his body.
