This is a great game to play with your entire class or in small groups. For those of you that do not know how to play JENGA, you stack the blocks in rows of three and create one tall tower. Then the students take turns pulling blocks out one by one to read and then place on top of the pile. They must complete all of that for their turn to be over. If they knock over the tower, they loss.
