Coloring game


GAME TIMEEEE! -- Coloring game (10 mins)

Prepare crayons (several of each color) and place them on a table. Hang coloring pictures on the wall (so that students can reach them) everywhere in the room.

Say the name of a student and a color. The student has to run to the table, take the color and choose a picture to color. He or she colors a part and sits down again.

To not have the other students waiting and make the things more fun, call many names at once with different colors or with the same color).

You can fix a time limit like 5-10 seconds or longer. The child runs back, puts the crayon on the desk and the next children complete the picture.

Once finished, look at what the coloring pictures look like after the game.

TRICKS FOR TEACHERS



1-INTRODUCE THE VOCAB BAG

Getting your students to do homework can be challenging. An easy way to force them to learn is by starting a vocabulary bag. At the end of every class give your student little papers and tell them to write words, idioms, grammatical structures learnt in class on those (I usually give 2 or 3 to each student). Keep those papers in a folder or plastic pocket.
The next class, have your students take papers in turns and give you definitions, synonyms, examples… If they don’t remember, explain what they mean again. By doing that every single day, they will automatically remember the things that come up regularly Once they know a papers very well you can take it out that way you can focus more on the new words.
Do it at the beginning of the class, that way the students that are always late don’t miss out on the correction of homework, the students that are here on time keep on learning and you don’t have to go over the correction of homework every time a new student walks in.

2-ALWAYS DO A LITTLE COOL-DOWN ACTIVITY AT THE END OF THE CLASS

FORMAL VS INFORMAL GAME


You can focus this game on whatever you like but today, I will show you how to teach formal vocabulary and its informal equivalent in a fun and easy way.

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • white paper
  • coloured cardboard (1 colour only)
  • staples
  • coloured markers/pens

HOW TO MAKE IT:


THE WEREWOLF GAME


HOW TO PLAY:

First you need to inform the students what all the roles are.
  • the werewolves want to kill all the villagers
  • cupid forces 2 players (could be wolves, witch, villagers…doesn’t matter) to “fall in love” with each other and they MUST both remain alive until the end.
  • The little girl gets to peek and see who the wolves are. She wakes up with the wolves and pretends to be one of them.
  • the witch has 2 magic potions…one to save and one to kill.
  • the villagers roles are to debate who the wolves are and kill them before they get killed. You can give special abilities to some of the villagers as well. I created a “drunk” who is not allowed to defend himself when accused of being a wolf or the mayor whose vote count double.
Now the game is basically a story with little debate like interruptions.
Here is the story I tell my students:

Tense Board - short explanations how to conjugate in English.

Tense Board that explains through colours and short explanations how to conjugate in English.



FOR STUDENTS:

Read it, analyse it and understand it. You should practice writing examples and compare them to the ones in the board. The structures should be the same, the only difference should be the subject and the verb. If something else looks different, then that probably means you did it wrong.
