Back To School Games Teaching Video

Great Classroom Games Video

In this teaching video you will see an experienced teacher with a class doing really good classroom games. These are ideal for a Back To School activity with a new class enabling the teacher to observe the students and to engage with them, setting down class ground rules in a fun way.

Students will learn to co-operate and pay attention to detail. Listening and talking when appropriate are key skills as well as recalling from memory and close observation.
