House Vocabulary Game

House Vocabulary Game

This House Vocabulary Game is a particular favourite with both native English speakers and students learning English. In my experience, young students become very keen and enthusiastic about being the first to complete their base cards with the appropriate items belonging to their particular part of the house. Older students at the initial / emergent stage of learning English would also benefit from using this resource. There are opportunities for speaking, listening and reading. The game is for 2 – 6 players and is easy to play. Each player is given a base board. The small cards are placed in the middle of the table face down. Players take turns at lifting a card, naming the item then placing it on their base board if it belongs in their part of the house. If it doesn’t, the player then replaces the card in the centre of the table face down. The winner is the first to complete his / her card. Luck and memory are involved in success so the winner isn’t always the most able student. This could be one reason for this type of game being so popular. The base boards and cards have colour coordinated borders to aid with identification. The house scenes and items used are listed below. Kitchen kettle, cooker, sink, cooker, fridge, vacuum, iron, ironing board, washing machine Living Room coffee table, settee, lamp, armchair, rug, television, plant, clock, bookshelves Bathroom toilet, basin, bath, shower, toothpaste, toothbrush, towel, shampoo Bedroom bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, dressing table, mirror, alarm clock, lamp, bunk beds, cot Garden lawnmower, tree, watering can, spade, gloves, wheelbarrow, rake, bucket, fork Garage tool box, gardening tools, paint pots, bicycle, broom, workbench, car, oilcan, tyre Included with this game are picture and word cards for learning the vocabulary used in the game. The cards can be used as a snap game (saying the names of items and reading the words as they are placed on the table) or as an individual or group matching activity

L Articulation Cards

L Articulation Cards

3 sets of UK English picture cards containing initial, medial and final /L/ words for use in Speech Therapy. Unlike many similar sets and word lists available these cards use UK English words, supporting vocabulary development and proving useful for children with Word Finding as well as Articulation difficulties.

Each picture card uses a photo to clearly demonstrate the word's meaning, requiring as little interpretation as possible to encourage the child to be able to access them as independently as possible. They can be used as flash cards, as word lists to send home as homework, or for games such as word fishing. The pack contains * 18 green bordered initial /L/ word picture cards *17 blue bordered medial /L/ word picture cards and 1 medial /L/ word card *18 yellow bordered final /L/ word picture cards

Sea creatures

Sea creatures

A memory game is a funny way to learn vocabulary. School year is almost over in most of the countries. Have students review occupations while having fun, matching pictures with the correct words.Comments are appreciated. Playing the Game The first player chooses a card and carefully turns it over. Be sure not to bother the surrounding cards. The player then selects another card and turns it over. If the two cards are a matching pair for example two Jacks then they take the two cards and start a stack. The player is awarded another turn for making a match and goes again. If the cards are not a match they are turned back over and it is now the next players turn. The next player chooses their first card and turns it over. If it is a match for one of the cards the previous player turned over then they try to remember where that matching card was and turn it. If they are successful at making a match they place the cards in their stack and choose another card. If the first card turned over was not a match for one previously turned over the player selects another card in an attempt of making a pair. If they are unsuccessful in making a match they flip the cards back over and play is passed to the next player. A players turn is not over until they are unable to make a matching pair. The game continues in this fashion until all the cards are played.
