Spread some holiday cheer among your students with this jolly set of Game Cards.

Students love playing games in their free time, be it video, mobile or tabletop games, but numerous studies have also shown the importance and positive impact games can have on learning. Incorporating games in your classroom 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 (All levels):

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

  • Students take turns picking up an image card, ask their classmates 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 essential part of the learning process! Enjoy this material with your class, and let us know how you liked it!
