Sort pictures and/or words into the scrapbook by dragging the photos to the correct scrapbook page. Once sorted, you can click on a picture to reveal the written word. This game works well for individual play, partners and as a whole class activity.
Important Setup Instructions
The Sort Scrapbook game requires that you choose a Word List that has more than one category. The game uses the categories as the 'buckets' in which the player will sort the words from that category.
Here is an example of a word list with more than one category: https://www.pinkcatgames.com/play/sort-scrapbook?game_id=67&quiz_id=2201
This word list covers beginning and ending sounds. As you can see from the image below, it has 44 categories. I have chosen the first two categories, Begins with Aa and Begins with Bb. You can see that in each category are words that match the category. These are the words that the player will sort into the category buckets in the game.
In the game, the categories appear as the headings and the player drags the words or pictures to each category.
Fun Ways to Play
If you have an interactive whiteboard in your classroom, this game makes for a fun, whole class review session. First choose a word list with at least 2 categories from the Choose Questions page. Then project the game onto your whiteboard. Have students come up one at a time to place a picture on the correct scrapbook page.
Assign this game to students and they will be able to play it independently on devices in centers. Students can play on their own or they can take turns in pairs. To learn how to set up games for centers, please read the article entitled How to Setup Games for Students to Access in Class.
At your group table, you could use a laptop or tablet to play the game collaboratively with your group. If you have an interactive whiteboard, playing the game on your board will be very engaging for your students.
Using your conferencing software such as Zoom for example, share your game screen and have students say which pictures go in which categories while you control the game. If you have a small group or single student, you could take turns and give students mouse control so that they can interact with the game.
