    I like the taboo idea - I'm teaching about letter writing and we will be writing a letter to Goldilocks. I wanted a starter for this lesson to remind them about the story of the 3 bears. I hope to give a few students key words and the other students guess the words based on the word they are holding.
    Thanks for all the other ideas. They are sure to come in handy!!
