Hi, I'd like to offer everyone another activity for teaching comprehension strategies.  This past year several of us introduced "questioning" to our students using the "Hedbanz" game by Spin Masters.  "Hedbanz" is a simple question game that everyone can enjoy. Students draw an identity card for an animal, food, or common object but there's one catch - everyone but the child is able to see the card. The card is displayed by the headband on the persons head. The goal is to deduce or infer who or what you have on your headband by asking the others questions and eliminating animals, foods, creatures, etc. from the clues you gain through your answers to the questions you ask.  This freebie is for a set of "Holiday Hedbanz" cards.  I've included:  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Presidents Day, Easter and several other holidays.  Pop on over to my store at TpT to download.  I still haven't figured out how to do all of this on "Google Docs", but I'm working on it.

The link to my store is:

I also wanted to let you know I've added two more "Back to School Organizational Binders" at TpT.  I just finished up my "Space Binder" and I've also added a "Cowboy Binder."  Below are a few pictures showing what's included.


  1. That's a great idea for comprehension! My kids love playing Hedbanz so this would be a hit. Thanks for sharing!!

  2. My kids wanted to play it for everything. We even adapted it a bit for visualizing. I would show one of the a card or picture and they would have to visualize and draw it for the group. The group had to look at the details and figure out what their friend had drawn. Kind of like Pictionary!
