Easter Board Game (Movers level)

1Hello! Since we’re going to celebrate Easter this weekend here in Romania and the kids (and the teachers!) are a couple of days away from a two-week spring break (oh-god-yes), I thought I’d make an Easter-related board game that involves more movement and is hopefully more fun. Also, this time it’s in Word, so you can edit it if you want.

So without further ado, here it is: Easter Board Game finalI plan on using it with my stronger Movers. Hope they’ll have fun with it.

Well, that’s it. Don’t forget to like and share and if you have any suggestions, I’d be more than happy to read them.

Have a great spring!🌼🌼🌼

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: ).

Recent whiteboard work

ELT planning

I mentioned a few whiteboard tips this time last year. I should probably follow my own advice, because my recent whiteboard work has been a bit shoddy.

I’ve been taking some pictures of my recent boards. I won’t post them up in full – I’m embarrassed that I actually make quite a few spelling mistakes. I’m working on that.

Here’s a snippet of one though… this made me chuckle. It must have been an interesting gap year this student was having…

Haha!

Among the abundance of scribbles and poor organisation, I have come across a few useful things. Obviously, if you’re taking pictures of your own board then you consciously try to make things neat or clear – some of these are recent things I’ve tried out so do let me know if you think they’re a bit rubbish!

I’m surprised I didn’t mention this in my…

Battleships: A PowerPoint adaptation

tekhnologic

The other day I was reading this post by Svetlana Kandybovich. The post was a list of the 10 most popular games from ELT-CATION, and one of the games on that list was Battleships.

I was looking at the game and thinking that not only had it been awhile since I last made a PowerPoint game, but Battleships would be relatively easy to make in PowerPoint.

So, I turned on my computer and started designing.

This is what I produced:

A single slide with letters on the vertical axis, numbers on the horizontal axis and the interior of slide is able to contain 35 words. The words don’t have to be unique vocabulary items; the board can contain duplicates.

Beneath the words are hidden ships that your students have to locate.

Take a look at this tutorial video to see how to use the template. The board used in the…

Personality Adjectives – Cards

dr_jekyll_and_mr_hyde_poster_edit2Here are some cards that you can use in class if you’re teaching/revising personality adjectives. They’re great for role-plays, miming or any other vocabulary games that you might want to use.

I’d love to hear some of your ideas on how to use these.

Download the cards here: personalityadjectives.

Happy teaching!

(Liking and sharing would really help: ).
