100+ Fun Charades  with Illustrations

100+ Fun Charades with Illustrations

Charades is a classic team or group game, easily suited for lots of different occasions and age levels and is absolutely enjoyed by many students! The object of the game is simple: players take turns acting out words, with no talking or sound effects. Other players try to guess the word, and the team or player who guesses the most wins. However, standard charades can be difficult for students. Due to time and team pressure, students sometimes are at a loss for ideas on how to act out the words. To counter this problem, I developed this product with: over 100 charades cards with phrases and sentences instead of words fun illustrations to go with each situation to help players associate words with something familiar Some students with lower (English) proficiency may benefit from this adaptation to the game so that they can join their classmates in the fun!

I´m Cindy from Leipzig, Germany. I have been a German and English teacher for more than 12 years now. And I love coffee breaks ☕️. Coffee is just great. Over the years I have realized how much my students benefit most from lessons where THEY are the leaders, where THEY are encouraged to be proactive and learn from each other. Handing over the reins to my students doesn’t make me weaker as a teacher. It makes them responsible for their own learning and is highly motivating. I don’t want my students to be sailors. I want them to be CAPTAINS! (And I want coffee!) My teaching resources are all designed to enable students to USE the language. This is why you will always find the communicative approach in my resources - even simple crosswords come with ideas for speaking activities.

Phonics clothes peg cards, KS1 / Autism / ADHD / SEN

Phonics clothes peg cards, KS1 / Autism / ADHD / SEN

Children read the word and attach clothes peg onto the appropriate picture. To reduce the possibility of guess work, many of the pictures are of items which are similar to the word if read incorrectly, for example ‘scare’ shows pictures for ‘scar’, ‘scare’ and ‘share’. Three sets of cards are in pack, 15 cards in each set, so 45 cards in total. Cards need trimmed and ideally laminated. I designed these for my learners with autism / ADHD as a more interactive way to practice reading, but they are also suitable for KS1 / SEN.
