FOOD Dobble

FOOD Dobble

This is my version of a popular game - Dobble. Dobble is a simple pattern recognition game in which players try to find an image shown on two cards. Each card in Dobble features eight different symbols, with the symbols varying in size from one card to the next. Any two cards have exactly one symbol in common. For the basic Spot it! game, reveal one card, then another. Whoever spots the symbol in common on both cards claims the first card, then another card is revealed for players to search, and so on. Whoever has collected the most cards when the 55-card deck runs out wins! I hope you find it useful. Please, leave a review I will be very grateful!

The Lighthouse Keeper Displays

The Lighthouse Keeper Displays

I never get bored of telling this story to children, I just love the way they enjoy the naughty seagulls stealing his lunch. It's also one of my favourite displays to create with blues of the sea and contrast of the Lighthouse. There's so many literacy opportunities- speech bubbles, instructional writing, descriptive writing, the list goes on...
The video was created for our Spanish students to give them an opportunity to listen to English over the summer holidays, however it can also be used as a starter for your class to create their own 'surprise' sandwich... My favourite food worksheet included.
