Powerpoint Game / Warmer - What's the Word
« on: February 13, 2013, 10:51:31 am »
My middle school boys loved this.  Guess the answer from pictures representing words and sounds that are the same as the answer.  Idea from others made by Tate on http://www.eslchronicle.com, then made these myself.

This was a real sleeper hit with elementary students.

I started off using these to begin the class as a warmer. Typically the response was a chorus of exasperated moans whenever the real answer was revealed.

But it seems that they had actually been enjoying them and now even ask for more when we're finished.

I've attached to my post a colour scheme that might work better with class TVs like mine.

Edit: Forgot to attach -_-

PS Thank you for the great idea!

Thank you so much for this. My students both love and hate this game from the groans and ahhs they make once the answer is revealed. Again thanks these have been a great time filler.
