Stop the bus!

StopTheBusHere’s a template that you can use to revise some of the vocabulary taught so far. Works well with Starters and Movers. So you can use this printable to play a version of Stop the Bus. Students work in pairs. The teacher announces the vocabulary topic to be revised (animals, vegetables, fruit, places in a city etc.) and a number of words (5 or 7 or 10) and the students write the words related to the respective category in one of the boxes on the page. The first pair to finish writing the word shouts “Stop the bus!” and everybody has to… well, stop. Students count their words, check whether they actually belong to that category: ) and whether the spelling is okay. Students get 1 point per each word they got right. Then the teacher announces another topic and the bus starts moving again: ).

Cards for Early Finishers

EarlyFinishersI designed these cards with Starter kids in mind but I think they can work just fine with Movers as well. I use them with early finishers. If they finished the task they were working on, they pick a card from the deck and do what it says on it (all the activities on these cards are writing activities).

Just print them on card, cut around the dotted line, put them in a deck and keep them in the classroom. Download them here: EarlyFinishers.

Hope they help!

Happy teaching!😏👓🎒
