Title: Board Game Camp
Post by: ajr30 on February 18, 2014, 03:05:38 PM
English Game Masters
The camp taught language used when playing games. We mostly played the games as a large group each day and then the final day was spent playing games in small groups using a 20 minute timer to rotate around tables.
I'll post each day's materials on a separate post. There are 4 days (+1 post for book materials)

Edit: In the PPT "Games in English", there's a slide that says watch and listen. There was a video the Korean teachers and me acted in. I don't have it anymore. They were embarrassed and asked me not to share it so I didn't keep it. You'll have to use your imagination and make a skit on your own. Just use the vocabulary from the other parts of the lesson (roll the dice, it's your turn, i won, etc).

Day 1
Introduction
About Me Jenga
Games in English
Faces, Faces

We skipped Category Cards due to time constraints. Thanks to whoever made the Mario Adventure Game. It was excellent. To practice the months of the year, we played LIAR. The dancing thing ended up being split between today and the next two days to give the entire class a chance to dance.

Day 2
Choose your own Adventure
Date Dance Party (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5bEbgBBAyU)
Make a Calendar (craft)

Again, due to time, we completely canceled Mystery Clues. We did Categories first. We didn't do Alphabet Soup. Instead we elected to spend more time on the Calendar dance. But I'm putting the Boggle game up in case you want to use it.

Day 3
Categories
Alphabet Soup
Dirt Parfait (cooking)

This day was the easiest of all. We started by finishing the remaining students who hadn't danced yet. Then we put the students into groups of 4. We set up tables with different board games or card games around the room. Each group got 10 minutes at a table. We did this for 80 minutes. The games were Guess Who, Scrabble, Jenga, LIAR, Uno (2 times), and two tables that they could choose (either LIAR or Jenga). We have all these games so no materials were needed but I know I've seen most of them on waygook if you need them. The cheat sheets were on each table so the students could try to speak English.

Day 4
Game Rotation
Golden Bell

Book Materials
We mostly used these for homework since we ran out of time on most days. The exception is the stuff for the Mario Choose your own Adventure Game. We made a rule that if you started any page in your book before the teacher said go, you would lose one point. This was pretty effective.

Here are some board games that I created recently (in 2014, for those of you who read this years later...)

These might prove a nice supplement!

Hope this helps!

Could you give  me more explanation in detail?

I don't know how to use the HP cards and the HP game board is damaged.

Could you upload it once again?

I appreciate your efforts

Not sure what happened to the original link. The Youtube title is The Calendar Song - Kids + Children Learn English Songs and it's uploaded by Busy Beavers. Here's the link again.

Not sure what the issue is. I just downloaded the board again and it isn't damaged. The HP cards are drawn when they land on a sorting hat space on the game board. Not sure what details you need. If you have any specific questions, I can answer them.

Sorry, I wasn't clear.  I listened to the song.  I'm just not understanding the activity.  Do they place the card on the floor and make a dance?  I'm sorry if I'm missing something obvious.

Also, I just download all these and all the material appears to be working fine for me...

The dance is like DDR where you step on the arrows in tempo with the song. You lay the cards on the ground (tape is helpful so they don't slip) and then you "dance" by stepping on the card that matches the music. You can practice using two fingers on paper in the book/handout I posted.

Oh, ok thank you for the clarification.  One last question (I hope  :-[).  With the angry birds portion of the Mario game did you just hide the birds in the classroom? was it like a mini scavenger hunt?

I printed and hid them around the class and in the hallway outside but if I was allowed, I would have hidden them all over the school. It's up to your school and students' level, I think. Just hide them well before class so no one sees where you hid them.

That's fantastic.  Thanks so much for your timely responses and for your great work on this camp.

Added the scorecards to the first post. The card was folded like a book but that ended up being too big. You can probably just do one row instead of two. Or just give out more points.

Hello! Your camp idea is really interesting, which intrigued me  a lot!

I was wondering if you have lesson plans about this camp like how u organize and do it.

Things are a little bit out of order in each day. I really wanna try urs!

Thanks!

Never wrote lesson plans. I didn't think they were needed. I'm not sure how these are out of order.
Just follow the numbers. For the first lesson, use ppt and doc numbered 1; for the second lesson, use the files numbered 2, etc etc.

Also, if you download all the material and look through it, it's pretty straight forward.  I was also confused when I first looked at it but once it's downloaded it's pretty easy to understand.

ajr30 when you did the game terms did you do a video?  I see the ppt says watch and listen but there is nothing to watch or was it like a skit?

Thanks so much

Hey Everyone,

I just did some games that really worked with my students and they caught on fast and enjoyed the games.  I have a small camp (2-3 students) but I'm sure these games would work in larger setting. 

I played UNO with them, found it at homeplus.  Kids really enjoyed it, I'd recommend investing in a set for your class if you don't already have one.

I also did Yahtzee, you can get Dice from homeplus (6 dice for a 1000 won) and it was easy to explain.  I'll attached a yahtzee pdf score sheet on this post.

I just noticed this. I've had a lot of people ask me about that PPT. There was a video the Korean teachers and me acted in. I don't have it anymore. They were embarrassed and asked me not to share it so I didn't keep it. You'll have to use your imagination and make a skit on your own. Just use the vocabulary from the other parts of the lesson (roll the dice, it's your turn, draw a card, i won, etc).

I've edited someone's great Mario-Mine craft board game and made it a blank template and also made a second board game with a Spongebob theme.

1. Mario-minecraft
2. Spongebob
3. Totoro

Just add the relevant pictures/words for the lesson and print out. Enjoy! ;D
