This quick-paced, nail-biter of a Kindergarten language arts review game will leave your kids BEGGING for more! Team up to knock out the other team's players. The last team standing wins! This is by far the most engaging thing I've done for my classroom. My kids get SO excited when we play, and they work super hard all week practicing their skills just so they can improve their Knockout™ game!

Not only is this GREAT for reviewing Kindergarten language arts skills, but it builds character as it emphasizes teamwork and good sportsmanship. You can also use it for a beginning of the year FIRST GRADE review 🙂

A quick look at Knockout™ & how it is played:
oDivide your class into 2 single file lines
oDisplay the first slide
oThe player at the front of his/her line faces off against the player from the other team: the first player to answer his/her question correctly wins and returns to the end of the line.
oThe player who does not win goes to sit on the team “bench” to cheer on the team!

BUT WAIT: That's not all.
If a player faces these slides, the following could happen:
oDouble Free Pass: Both players automatically get to stay in the game!
oDouble Knockout™: Both players are automatically out!
oKnockout™/Free Pass: One player goes, one stays!
oPick a Pal: Choose a player from the bench to return to the game!
oKnockout™/Pick a Pal: One player goes, the other chooses a friend to return!

The team with players standing at the end of the game wins. In our classroom, we like to keep teams the same for a week or two and keep a running score as a Knockout™ “tournament.” Check out these free Knockout scoreboards HERE

This is a set of PowerPoint files and can be used on any device that supports PowerPoint. Each game is a PowerPoint presentation that has about 30 slides. The games are also available as a PDF; please read the “READ FIRST” file that comes with this product to view directions for PDF or PowerPoint set-up. Please note: All PowerPoint games are made so the order of slides can be changed around; PDF files cannot be changed at all.
