This is a fun twist on story time. Have each child you are babysitting for choose a book. After you read a book, quiz the children on what you just read. The kids will have fun thinking of answers to your questions, and it will help them focus on the story, too. You might become their new favorite storyteller.
Gather a group of friends for this game. One person goes to the other side of the yard or room. She thinks of a movie and says the initials of that movie title. She can also give three clues. When one of the players has a guess for the name of the movie, she can run to her and tell her the name. The first girl to answer correctly gets to think of the next movie.

For example, if a report is about the human body, you could draw a skeleton or a body part that the report discusses. My teacher thought it was a great idea when I showed her my binder!
