The Magic Crayons: Flash Cards
Time: 5 minutes
Receptive Language: ‘What’s this?’
Productive Language: unit vocabulary
Game Explanation: A quick warm-up / review. Sitting in front of the class with a stack of flash cards (you may want to include cards from previous months as well as the current month’s), demonstrate to the students that you will show them the cards one by one & that if any of the students can correctly identify the cards, the entire class scores a point, whereas if they cannot, you, the teacher, score a point.
Continue until you’ve gone through the entire stack & have the students count the final scores with you.
Note: Try not to win, but work some obvious cheating in to amuse the students. Guaranteed to work.
