A set of game cards and activities with Christmas vocabulary.

Numerous studies have shown the importance and positive impact of games on learning. After all, you know your students love playing in their free time, be it video, mobile or tabletop games. This is why by incorporating games in your classroom you can help your learners develop a positive relationship with the language and English lessons. While working with games, the teacher’s role changes from an instructor to a guide. This helps you to reduce teacher talking time and make the students the centre of the lesson.

 

Try this game to use our Christmas Game Cards in your classroom!

Matching sentences (Pre-intermediate and up):

  •  Ask students to play in pairs and place word cards facing up and image cards facing down.

  • Students take turns to pick up an image card, ask their classmate to pick up the matching word card and give a sentence using the word.

  • If their classmate can answer in less than 10 seconds, they win the card pair; if not, the other student can try to “steal” the pair by giving a sentence.

  • The student with the most card pairs wins.

 

When working with games, let loose your creativity to build a motivating environment in your classroom. Remember that emotions are an important part of the learning process! Enjoy this material with your class and let us how you liked it!
