I chose the topic, Five Activities with Flash Cards, because of the positive learning skills and self-esteem I got from flash cards and games. With flash cards and games, I was more focused, I learned better and faster, and my attention span was longer. Here are the names and directions of how to play these games. Nothing but Net For this flash card game, you will need a ball, a basket or trash can, and flash cards with the vocabulary you would like to teach. Put the class in a semicircle and divide the semicircle into two teams. Have the first two students come in front of the class and ask the students a question. For example, "What did you have for breakfast for today?" Allow the students to answer and then show them a picture of milk. The student who gives the correct answer first will have a chance to throw the ball into the basket. If the ball goes into the basket, the student will get a point for their team. Keep repeating this process until all of the flash cards have been used. What's Missing For this flash card game, you will need the flash cards with the vocabulary you want to teach. Put the cards up on the board and introduce all of the cards to the students first. After the introduction, have all of the students close their eyes and take one card off of the board. Have the students open their eyes and ask the students, "What's missing?" and the students will tell you which card is missing. Make sure your students use complete sentences and they are not just shouting out the word. Under Over For this flash card game, you will need two sets of flash cards with the vocabulary you want to teach. Divide the class into two teams and have the students stand in two lines. Give the students, who are first in line, each a flash card and have them say what is on their card out loud. The first student will pass the card over their head to the student behind them. The second student will read the flash card out loud and pass the card to the next person between their legs. Keep repeating this process until the card reaches the end of the line. The last student will race to the front of the line and get a new card. Keep repeating this process until all of the cards have been used. Match For this flash card game, you will need the flash cards of vocabulary that you want to teach. First, put the students in a semicircle with the teacher in the middle. The teacher will hold up the first card and say the name of what is on the card out loud. If the word matches the picture on the card, the students will stand up and say the name of the picture on the card out loud. If the teacher says the wrong word on the card, then the students will stay seated and silent. Repeat this process until you have reviewed all of the vocabulary. Duel For this flash card game, choose the flash cards with the vocabulary you would like to use. First, split the class into two groups an have the first two students of each group come to the front of the class. The students need to stand back to back. Then give each student a flash card and the teacher will count down, 3, 2, 1, dual! The students will turn around and look at each others cards and say the work on the card. Whom ever says the word on the card first, gets a point for their team. Keep repeating this process until all of the students have had a turn and all of the flash cards have been used. All of the games I have written about came from two different You Tube videos. The first video, "ESL Games with Flash Cards for Kids." Taught me about the games, "Nothing but Net," "Match," and "Dual," all of these games are on on this video. This video was published by Mooncake English. The second video is called, "ESL Flash Card Games for Kids," The games, "What's Missing," and "Over Under," are on this video. This video was published by Mooncake English.
