Get students talking about autumn with this set of Game Cards.
Help your students describe clothes and accessories with this 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 with your students using our The Fall Game Cards!
Yes/No questions mingling game (all levels, 6+ student classes)
- Ask students to place word cards on the left and image cards on the right in the same order to create a word-image association.
- Go over the new vocabulary as a class.
- Choose as many cards as you have students in your class.
- Shuffle cards, distribute them to students and remind them they should not let anyone see their card.
- Students mingle and ask each other yes/no questions about their partner’s card, like ‘Is it orange? Is it an animal?’ until they find the match for their card.
- If your class is lower level, explain the game before distributing cards and elicit some questions and/or the question structure (e.g., the difference between yes/no questions and do/does questions).
- If your class is small, repeat the game a few times with other cards.
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!
