Memory Balloons - activity

Whenever I'm finishing a topic and starting a new one, I usually make this activity with the kids.
I draw several balloons on the blackboard and ask them to try to fill each memory balloon with one word from the last topic we've learned.
For example, yesterday I wrote Food on the board and started drawing the balloons. It didn't take to long before the kids filled all the balloons.
After we do this together on the board, the kids copy it to their Portfolios. With this activity they recall vocabulary and they keep an organized bank of words on their Portfolios.

  1. It's an excellent idea!
    I usually do this but if the theme was the Clothes, we would draw a big t-shirt and write the words in it! If the theme was food we would draw an apple...

  2. I Love your idea! I will probably use it tomorrow because my younger students have just finished the subject "human face". Thank you so much! **
