Want your ESL students to practice using themed vocabulary from the chapters you study? Are you looking for a fun way for them to review vocabulary they've already learned? This NO PREP activity is a fun way to encourage your intermediate to advanced students to speak more. You can pull out these cards and use them as ice-breakers, bell-ringers, club activities, games and much more. Right now this bundle includes five sets, but I will be adding at least 15 more sets over the course of the year. When you purchase this bundle today at this discounted price you will get ALL FUTURE SETS FOR FREE. That's right! All you'll need to do is re-download. Every time I add a new set the price will increase slightly. Now's a great time to get in on the deal. You can use these speaking question cards after teaching themed vocabulary or as a fun interactive activity on a day when you want to just focus on speaking and reviewing vocabulary in a different way. Each set contains 30 questions. More than half of the questions begin with interrogative words encouraging more than YES and NO responses. All cards are visually stimulating and feature a circle to punch out in the upper left corner so that you can print, laminate, cut out, punch holes and hook the cards together with a keyring. Using these cards this way makes it easy to pull them out year after year to use as NO PREP speaking activities.

I have ... Who has? ESL house and home vocabulary activity

I have ... Who has? ESL house and home vocabulary activity

This is a really fun game to practice with your students who are learning vocabulary about HOUSE AND HOME, and it involves NO PREP. I've included both a beginner and intermediate version of the game. The beginner version has the words written out and the intermediate version only shows pictures. Have a look at the thumbnails to see what they look like. Each version includes 32 cards. Depending on class size you could either give each student more than one card or have them play with a partner. I recommend printing out and laminating these cards if possible so that you can use them over and over again.Here's how this activity works. Once each student has a card (or cards), the one who has the card that says "I'll begin" starts the game. He says, for example, "I'll begin. I have the fireplace. Who has the window?" The person who has the card with a window on it says, "I have the window. Who has the curtains?" And so the activity goes on until the last card is called and that student's card will say, "That's the end!"Another idea is to prepare two sets of cards, divide your class into two groups and let each group have a go to see which team can get through the entire deck of cards the fastest. If the vocabulary is completely new you could start out with the beginner deck and as the words become more familiar you could move on to the intermediate level. It's really a lot of fun, and though you can play with younger students the older ones love this game just as much.
