Talking Club Games
« on: October 07, 2015, 09:49:08 am »
Modified from the original but I can't seem to find it.

Basically students guess what happens next in the GIFS.
I get one student to read the options and give their answer each round.

Students start with 50$ (the highest bet they can make is $25) and they bet on which answer they think it correct.

2. WHO, WHAT, WHERE.
« Reply #1 on: October 13, 2015, 09:44:43 am »
GREAT activity:

Groups of 2/3 or 4. (10-15 minutes)

Place 2/3 or 4 chocopies infront of the class. The first group to solve where each person lives, their pet, profession, favorite movie wins.

Cut out the clue blocks + give each student an answer sheet.


also in ppt. are random questions for students to try answer.

4. Sentence words - Choose two words
« Reply #3 on: October 13, 2015, 10:42:47 am »
Basic speaking game.

Can be altered to suit students proficiency.

Students pick up one yellow card (objects) and one orange card (adjectives) and try make a sentence.

*I can't find the file with all my original words so these are just a few add ons.

5. DESERT SURVIVAL
« Reply #4 on: October 13, 2015, 02:36:29 pm »
Students move through the story and decide what items to take with them to survive the desert.

If they are not equipped they must explain their way out of the situation OR ROLL THE DICE AND FACE THE CONSEQUENCES!

*The file has GIFS and is  over the waygook size (sorry)

6. Questions Free Talking Cards - PICK A CARD GAME
« Reply #5 on: October 13, 2015, 02:51:56 pm »
I usually do this in the last 5-10 minutes of a talking class.

Sometimes I ask students to answer in the group circle, other times in front of the class, other times juts to leave class.

1. Students select a playing card.
2. They tell me their card eg. "Queen of hearts"
3. Read the Question
4. Answer the question.

*If anything, I believe my students will become excellent poker players because of me :evil:.

* If uploaded an easier version more suited to elementary school 5/6 kids

PASS THE STORY
« Reply #7 on: November 02, 2015, 08:43:59 am »
A fun no prep game I have been doing/ did for halloween.

Pass the Story:

This game is best played in 3 rounds so students are used to generating language by the writing round.

1st round. Students pick a place and teacher (in very simple English sets the scene)
eg: It was a cold night in Bong Mu park. A big monster came out the lake and started walking to Bong Mu School.

next each student must come up with another line to fill the story.

Second round (start a new story), students each select a word from the sentence cards ( post is above) and they must use the word in their story sentence.

3rd round: Same as above but this time each person has a piece of paper, they write the first sentence (where) then pass it to the left and write the next sentence (what) then pass it to their left then they continue writing (and then what happened).

Eventually everyone has
 a funny story and students enjoy reading them to the class.

FLASHCARDS
« Reply #8 on: February 23, 2016, 02:27:29 pm »
GRD 5 & 6 AFTERCLASS THIS YEAR.

I decided to make flashcards to be used in multiple activities throughout the year.

The flashcards are all the words learnt from GRD 3-5

Grd 5 STUDENTS: will be tested on GRD 3&4.
Grd 6 STUDENTS: Will be tested on GRD 3-5.

P.S It is a mission to print & laminate but I think it's a worthy resource.

My students loved this so much! I used it right from 2nd grade up to 6th grade. I had to do a lot of actions to help out the little ones understand the possible outcomes but they thought it was great. I did have one girl who was really diasappointed that there was no lion though...haha!

Thank you for your posts!

Countdown / Catchword
« Reply #17 on: July 04, 2016, 12:28:32 pm »
Another repost from another Waygooker.

This is a link to a site to play Countdown/ Catchword.
It mimics the whole gameshow atmosphere too!

Basically, students or teams try to make the longest word possible in the time.
