1. Circle Pass: The students and the teacher sit in a circle. The teacher starts by passing a picture card to the student on his left, saying, “This is a horse.” The student takes the card and passes it to the next student, saying, “This is a horse.” The card is passed around the circle. When the card returns to the teacher, the teacher puts that card aside and introduces a new card in the same manner. To up the challenge: a) wait until a card has reached the halfway mark, then introduce a second card going in the same direction; b) introduce cards at the same time going in opposite directions; or c) send 3-4 cards around the circle in the same directions with little pause between each. 2. Story Time! Distribute one card per student and tell them that you will tell a story. Each time they hear their word they have to clap or raise their hand. Make sure the teacher has a list of the words or write the story beforehand in order to make sure that each word is said several times. Use this game with a familiar book or a movie scene to focus attention on listening. 3. Spell it out! Hand out word flash cards to students. The teacher vocally spells out a word. The student with that card hands it back to the teacher 4. Write Around The Room Put cards around the room, give students a blank piece of paper on a clipboard, and have them search around the room for cards to write on their boards. Once all the words are ‘found’, students then have to write the words again in alphabetical order. 5. Draw it! Divide the class into two teams. One student from Team A comes to the board, picks a word flashcard, and draws the image on the board. The team has 30 seconds to guess the picture. If they can name it, they get a point and it is Team B’s turn. At the end, the team with the most points wins. 6. Dictation This classic game is great for practicing grammar structures, vocabulary or topics. Put students in pairs or small groups. Display a copy of a text or topic the teacher want his students to revise on the wall at one end of the classroom or outside the classroom. One student from the group has to go to the text, read, and memorize a sentence. She then returns to the group and tells the others what she read. Then the next student goes and reads the next line. Students continue until the text is completed. Then, groups swap their dictations and check how many errors have been made. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
