I play a game similar to this, although I call it "The Telephone Game". Same setup, 2 lines of kids sitting in chairs, but I don't use writing. I take the two students at the end of the line out into the hallway and either tell them a sentence or show it to them from a book. When I say "go!" they pass it on down the line, and the last person has to stand up and say the sentence. If it's not perfect the first person has to pass the sentence down again. And again....and again. No one gets a point until one of the teams gets it perfect.
