If you are teaching how to talk about the weather, you can use our new spinner. It focuses on the vocabulary worked in our unit 3 : raining, sunny, snowing, foggy,windy, cloudy, hot and cold.
Students in Level 1 started making this spinner today. They traced, coloured and cut them, but previously, we practiced the new vocabulary with some oral games and singing this funny song. They enjoyed it! Do you dare to sing it along with us? Try it!
Games are an essential part of teaching English as a foreing language. They can be used to warm up the class before our lesson begins, during the lesson to give students a break or to reinforce one subject, or even at the end of class when we have a few minutes left. The list of EFL games is endless and they can be used to test vocabulary, practice conversing, learn tense,…
Here you have some games we use for revising vocabulary related to books and films genres. They are also perfect for practicing grammar(likes and dislikes), tenses and speaking and listening.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK
This is a previuos activity used to engage and motivate before starting each lesson as an element of our gamification. Students have to answer or ask their teacher a question in order to get “checkpoints” on their passport.
It is a great way of testing what your students learnt about the subject worked on previous lessons. It allows them to learn from their classmates as well as they have to stay focusing on the activity in order to achieve the best results.
When use it? Before the lesson
Why use it? Grammar, vocabulary, oral skills, students’ attention, learn to learn
This is a pair work activity which students have to complete the missing information by asking a series of yes/no questions and giving information about people’s interest.
In this pair work activity students will complete the missing information by asking about people’s interest.
When use it? during the lesson/end of the lesson
Why use it? Grammar, vocabulary, oral skills, listening comprehension, speaking
This is a really fun way to end a lesson. In this speaking work game, students play a board game where they will practice and review what they have learnt in this unit. Divide the class into pairs and give each group a copy of the game board( better A3), a dice and counters. They then take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When one student lands on a square, he/she has to ask his/her classmate a question. If the student can’t answer the question, he/she misses a turn.
I love using spinners because of the benefits of using then as a learning resource.
Spinners provide a fun and exciting way of helpling kids practice vocabulary or structures as they see it more as a game.
Word recognition helps develop reading ability faster.
They can be used anywhere at home, at school or even in the car.
If you are teaching how to ask about abilities, you can use this Can you…? spinner. It focuses on the vocabulary worked in our unit 2:sing, ride a bike, make models, juggle, play the guitar, do karate, dance and paint, but one blank spinner template is avaliable if you want your kids desing their own wheel.
Encántame usar as ruletas polos beneficios que teñen como recurso educativo.
As ruletas proporcionan unha forma divertida e emocionante de axudar aos nenos para practicar o vocabulario e as estruturas xa que o ven máis como un xogo.
O recoñecemento das palabras axuda a desenvolver a habilidade lectora máis rápido.
Podémolas usar onde queiramos; no cole, na casa, no coche,..
Se queres traballar na aula como preguntar polas habilidades , podes empregar este recursos. O vocabulario empregado é o que estamos a traballar na aula pero tes unha versión en blanco se queres que os alumnos deseñen eles mesmos a súa ruleta.
Version 1: This is probably the most basic way to make a spinner! Simply poke a pencil through your card game disc and spin it like a top. The good thing about this method is that every child in your class can have their own spinner. However, I have found that the hole in the middle of the card quickly starts to widen and the disc falls down.
Versión 1: Esta é probablemente a forma máis básica de facer unha ruleta! Simplemente insira un lapis a través do seu disco de xogo de cartas e víreo como unha buxaina. O bo deste método é que cada neno da túa clase pode ter a súa propia ruleta. Con todo, descubrín que o orificio no medio da tarxeta comeza a alargarse rapidamente e o disco cae.
Version 2:This is one of the easiest and most effective ways to make a home-made spinner, and my personal favourite! Cut out the top and bottom part of the spinner.Punch a hole through the middle (top and bottom part) and insert a brass paper fastener through the holes on both top and bottom part and children can play with their classmates.
Versión 2: Esta é unha das formas máis fáciles e efectivas de facer unha ruleta caseira, e a miña favorita! Recorta a parte superior e inferior da roda xiratoria. Faga un burato no medio (parte superior e inferior). Insira o cravo a través dos buracos na parte superior e inferior e os rapaces xa poderán xogar cos seus compañeiros.
We write the date in English in different ways. The most common way in British English is to write the day of the month first (ordinal numbers), then the month (starting with a capital letter) and then the year:
7th September, 2021
*You can write first the day of the week.
Monday, 1st December, 1997
When we say dates in English , we say ‘the’ before the number followed by ‘of’. For example,
It’s the first of January.
In English, DAYS AND MONTHS always with an initial capital: January, February, Tuesday, Sunday,…
