Would you rather ...? ESL / Fun English speaking game - laughs guaranteed! Great for levels A2 - B2

❤️ Would you rather … ? ❤️ This fun game can be used as speaking or writing prompts for min. 2, max. 6 - 8 players. Learners take turns to answer the questions on the cards. The given ideas may both not be very attractive but learners will have to decide on one and explain why. Depending on your student´s language level you can ask them to have a small discussion: learners state their opinion and the others in the group try to convince them of the opposite alternative. I have enclosed some templates to boost your students own creativity. Have fun using this game in class! ❤️ About me ❤️ Hi there 👋🏼! 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. All of my resources have been tested in class and will be updated regularly. Please rate my resources to help me build a reputation among millions of resources. Thanks for working with me ☺️ Cindy ❤️ Please see my other resources, too: [https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/CindyKuehne]

IGCSE Edexcel English B - Revision (Section A comprehension and question writing)

This is a revision resource I created for my Year 11 class. It contains two texts, as well as a Powerpoint presentation with instructions and notes. The texts are from the internet and the questions are borrowed from past papers, but the activity is mine. This should help the students give peer feedback, evaluate their own understanding as well as prepare them for Section A of course. Edit: I have changed the second document and replaced the second text with another text that has less strong language in it.

Growth Mindset Train the Brain Vocabulary Words Game

Growth Mindset Train the Brain Vocabulary Words Game

This fun and engaging Jeopardy Style Game is the perfect way to learn or review about Growth Mindset. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. This is a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy
